WATCH: A BNP Paribas Open semifinalist in 2019, Svitolina bowed out in the fourth round this year to Jessica Pegula.
Elina Svitolina revealed she had parted ways with coach Andrew Bettles on social media Monday morning, ending a five-year collaboration that yielded 11 WTA titles and an Olympic bronze medal.
“I am very thankful for all his hard work and endless support,” Svitolina wrote. “I wish him only the best in his future career!”
A former world No. 3, Svitolina first hired Bettles as a hitting partner, having previously worked with Ana Ivanovic, but officially came on board as her official coach in 2018.
Through a year that has brought her much personal happiness—including an engagement and wedding to partner Gaël Monfils—the Ukrainian has endured more erratic play on court, showing only flashes of the form that took her to back-to-back Grand Slam semifinals in 2019.
Despite a heartbreaking US Open defeat to eventual finalist Leylah Fernandez, Svitolina had an outside chance of qualifying for the WTA Finals—a title she won in 2018 and finished runner-up to Ashleigh Barty the following year—but suffered early exits at the BNP Paribas Open and the inaugural 250-tournament in Tenerife.
Svitolina is yet to announce a new coach.
