Promising American Madison Keys has split from her 2015 coach Lindsay Davenport, the WTA announced yesterday.
“Madison Keys and Lindsay Davenport are no longer working together. Keys’ agent confirmed,” the WTA Insider tweeted Wednesday. “Madison Keys’ new coach: Jesse Levine. The two know each other well and Levine hit with Keys before her strong run in Charleston this year.”
Keys went 14-4 in Grand Slam play in 2015 highlighted by an Australian Open semifinal which propelled her into the Top 20. She finished No. 18, up from No. 31 from 2014.
The 20-year-old though struggled the second half of the season going just 10-7 post-Wimbledon.
Davenport has duties with the Tennis Channel and her husband and kids. The lefty Levine played tennis at the University of Florida and reached a career-high No. 69 in 2012. He is 28.
