Samantha Stosur discusses her split with her coach of six years, David Taylor. The separation occurred even though she won the Carlsbard tournament with Taylor in her corner earlier this month.

“I think we both were kind of feeling that we’d almost come to the end,” Stosur told reporters at the U.S. Open. “Unfortunately, it happened to be last week. I don’t think, neither of us, I’m sure, would have wanted it to happen right then, and obviously with winning that tournament almost makes it seem a little bit strange. But I think we both felt that it was time and, if something’s time is up, then you’ve kind of got to call it a day.”

Stosur will consult with Australian Fed Cup captain Alicia Molik at the U.S. Open.

“She will help me here, and after this tournament I will kind of assess what I want to do, who maybe it can be, and go from there,” she said. “But there is no one in particular at the moment.”
