Radwanska said in statement, “I just wanted to thank Martina for her time and efforts over these last few months. It was a great experience to work with one of the all-time greats. However we both agreed that as Martina could not commit 100 percent to the project then it was not going to work as a long term partnership. We will stay friends and I wish her all the best in her personal and professional life.”
“I am stepping down as Agnieszka’s part-time coach,” Navratilova said. “I think I underestimated the time it would take to make this a proper and good situation for both Agnieszka and me.”
The split was over Navratilova’s inability to commit to the Polish No. 1, but under the legend Radwanska has been struggling this season.
The 26-year-old has fallen three spots from her 2014 season finish to a current ranking of No. 9. And after suffering her first opening round loss in six months at Stuttgart this week, Radwanska is just 13-11 on the year only twice reaching a quarterfinal in eight WTA events – QFs at Doha, SF at Katowice.
In the interim, Radwanska will continue will continue to work with Tomasz Witkorowski.
