Naomi Osaka took to Twitter on Monday to announce a split with her coach Sascha Bajin.

No further information on the decision has yet been given.

The announcement brings an abrupt end to a hugely successful partnership that lasted a little over a year.

WIth Bajin as coach, Osaka rose from number 72 to the very summit of the world rankings in a year, winning back-to-back Grand Slams at the US Open and Australian Open.

The 34-year-old German coach spent eight years as Serena Williams’ hitting partner, before spending a short stint with Caroline Wozniacki prior to his involvement with Osaka.
