Naomi Osaka splits with coach Sascha Bajin after breakthrough year

Naomi Osaka splits with coach two weeks after second Grand Slam title

"I will no longer be working together with Sascha", Osaka tweeted.

The news comes just three weeks since Osaka's successful run to her second straight major title at the Australian Open, which launched her to World No.1.

Osaka's agent confirmed to The Associated Press that Osaka would no longer be coached by Bajin but said there would be no further comment.

Osaka enjoyed a remarkable rise up the world rankings after first linking up with Bajin in the 2017 off-season.

" Thanks to my team, I don't think I would have made it through this week without you".

The Japanese player captured her first Grand Slam crown by stunning Williams at last year's US Open in a final remembered as much for the American's astonishing rant at the chair umpire following a coaching violation.

The 21-year-old added the Australian Open to her growing list of honors in January and consequently topped the world rankings for the first time in her career.

Less than a half-hour after Osaka's tweet, Bajin responded to her on Twitter.

Osaka, who withdrew from this week's Qatar Open due to a back injury, has not yet announced a replacement for Bajin.
