After her best season by ranking, in a surprising move Madison Keys has split with coach Tomas Hogstedt.
“Thomas and I have a rich history of working together with Li Na, Maria Sharapova and most recently Madison,” Confirmed Keys’s agent Max Eisenbud to the WTA. “His work with all three of these girls speaks for itself. Coaching on the women’s tour is not easy and sometimes these relationships just don’t work out, nothing more than that.”
Under Hogstedt since April, Keys reached the finals of Rome and Canada and won her second career title in Birmingham.
Keys, though, still failed to crack the fourth round in Slams this year, losing at that stage in all four in 2016.
The 21-year-old finished a year-end best No. 8 (up from No. 18 a year ago) with a 47-17 record.
No replacement has been named.
