After a breakthrough season, WTA sensation Eugenie Bouchard is making changes. The 20-year-old is already shopping for a new agency to represent her, and now she’ll also be looking for a new coach this offseason.
Via a press release, longtime Bouchard coach announced his split with the Canadian.
“Genie and I have decided that it is best for us to end our player-coach relationship and to move in different directions for 2015. Helping Genie grow from an ambitious 12-year-old to No. 5 in the world has been an exciting journey,” said Saviano who had worked with Bouchard for eight years.
“This past year traveling with Genie to all of the majors has been a wonderful experience with memories I will cherish for a lifetime. I have no doubt that Genie will accomplish great things. I wish her all the best.”
The 58-year-old Saviano has been a part of coaching in American tennis for over 30 years.
Bouchard, who reached a career-high No. 5 in the WTA rankings, has not commented on the split.
