Elise Mertens has split with her coach, Simon Goffin, following a seven-month partnership.

The 26-year-old Belgian announced the move following her singles campaign at Wimbledon, reaching the round of 16. She's also through to the final in doubles, partnering Zhang Shuai as the tournament's top seeded team.

Thanking Goffin for his "support and advice," Mertens added their "different views" on the way she should play were "too challenging" for their collaboration. No new coach was announced.


“I want to inform you that the collaboration with my coach Simon Goffin has come to an end,” she wrote on Twitter. “I am very grateful for his support and advice, but our different views on how to become a better player have proven to be too challenging.

“I wish Simon all the best and I am sure he will find a new challenge very soon.”

According to press from Belgium, Goffin had not traveled to Wimbledon.

The pair began working together during the 2021 offseason. Mertens had also reached the fourth round of the Australian Open and French Open this season, but hasn't gone beyond the quarterfinals in any singles event.

Having reached a career-high No. 12 in 2018, Mertens is No. 31 in the singles rankings.
