Madison Keys is no longer working with Lindsay Davenport and now has hired Jesse Levine as coach, according to WTA Insider. The 28-year-old Levine hit with Keys in April when she reached the final of Charleston, on green clay.

Davenport, a former No. 1 and three-time Grand Slam singles champion, began to work with Keys during the 2014 off-season. Her husband, Jon Leach, also worked with Keys through out this past year.

The 20-year-old American ended the 2015 season ranked No. 18. She reached the semifinals of the Australian Open, upsetting Petra Kvitova and Venus Williams before losing to Serena Williams. She subsequently finished runner-up in Charleston, reached the quarterfinals at Wimbledon, and the fourth round of the US Open (where she again lost to Serena Williams). She made only one other quarterfinal, in Strasbourg.
Levine, who reached No. 69 in 2012, retired in 2014 due to an elbow injury.
