Sloane Stephens reunites with coach Kamau Murray

After a disappointing summer, the 2017 US Open champion looks to get back on track by working with her former coach.

Sloane Stephens has reunited with former coach Kamau Murray, with the pair to work together during the US Open.

Stephens and Murray went "on a break" -- in Murray's description -- during the offseason, having had a successful collaboration that saw Stephens win her first Grand Slam title at the 2017 US Open.

"Happy to be back with Kamau," Stephens wrote on social media. ''Excited for the next couple of weeks [at the] US Open."

Stephens began working with experienced coach Sven Groenveld just before the French Open, but announced a few days ago that they had decided to split just before the season's final major.

The 26-year-old has won just one match in her three hardcourt events before Flushing Meadows.

Stephens is No. 11 in the rankings.
