Despite having a career-best year in which she won six titles and cracked the Top 15, Simona Halep has split with coach Adrian Marcu.

The Romanian announced at the Tournament of Champions in Sofia that the two had a positive relationship, but that she wants to take further steps in her career with other coaches.

In other coaching moves, Riccardo Piatti, who decided to leave Richard Gasquet before the Frenchman played his last match at the ATP World Tour Finals, said that their relationship remains excellent and that he left purely for personal reasons.”

“I arrived at a point in my private and professional life where I feel I need to change something on the road that leads me to one side to be closer to my family, the other to complete my technical experience,” the 55-year-old told Tennis Italiano.
