TENNIS- Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka has parted ways with Coach Sascha Bajin, the Japanese player announced on Monday.

Osaka, 21, tweeted, “Hey everyone, I will no longer be working together with Sascha. I thank him for his work and wish him all the best in the future.”

Bajin responded, “Thank you Naomi. I wish you nothing but the best as well. What a ride that was. Thank you for letting me be part of this.”

Naomi worked with the German for just over a year and enjoyed great success. With Bajin, she won the US Open last year, this year’s Aus Open and is currently the world number one.

Neither Osaka nor Bajin has given any reason for their decision to part ways.
