WATCH: Halep's victory in Toronto made her a pre-tournament favorite to win her third major title at the US Open.


Simona Halep has reportedly split with husband Toni Iuruc after 11 months of marriage, Iuruc reportedly confirmed to Fanatik. Halep is yet to comment on the news.

Calling it a mutual decision, Iuruc aims the separation will occur “in the most civilized way possible,” in a statement translated by Romanian media.

Halep and Iuruc married last September following the 2021 US Open in lavish ceremony.

"It's an extremely important step. I'm happy it's happening," Halep told press in Romania at the time.

The news of the couple’s impending divorce comes almost a year to the day of the nuptials, and just over a week after the former world No. 1 endured an opening-round exit at this year’s US Open.

Halep’s loss to Daria Snigur is the latest in what has largely been an up and down season for the two-time Grand Slam champion, who parted with longtime coach Darren Cahill at the end of last season. Halep partnered with current coach Patrick Mouratoglou ahead of the European clay swing, and has since made his eponymous academy her permanent training base in France.

She previously enjoyed a strong run of form in the lead up to the US Open, reaching the Wimbledon semifinals and winning her 24th career title at the National Bank Open in Toronto.

Halep is still in contention to compete at the 2022 WTA Finals, which is set to take place in Fort Worth, Texas at the end of October.
