World No 1 Naomi Osaka has split from her coach Sascha Bajin just weeks after winning the Australian Open to complete back-to-back grand slam victories.
“Hey everyone, I will no longer be working together with Sascha. I thank him for his work and wish him all the best in the future,” the 21-year-old tweeted in a shock announcement Monday.
And Bajin, a former hitting partner to Serena Williams, has responded: “Thank you Naomi. I wish you nothing but the best as well. What a ride that was. Thank you for letting me be part of this.”
Osaka, who became the first Asian to hold the top ranking after beating Czech Petra Kvitova in the Melbourne final, had worked with the German for just over a year. No reason was given for the decision to part ways.
The Japanese player captured her first slam by stunning Williams at last year’s US Open in a final remembered as much for the American’s astonishing tantrum at the chair umpire following a coaching violation.
Based in the United States, Osaka linked up with Bajin in late 2017 and enjoyed a breakthrough year, climbing from 72 in the world to the top of the women’s rankings.
She had the world at her feet after a nail-biting 7-6, 5-7, 6-4 win over Kvitova in the Australian Open final, earning praise from tennis greats and fans alike.

This is how it is, suffer with them from the scratch and when they hit the top, they dump you. Simple.
