Former tennis world number one Naomi Osaka will have to find a new coach. His previous coach Wim Fisset announced the end of the collaboration with the Japanese in an Instagram post.
“It is my privilege to coach Naomi from 2019 onwards,” the Belgian wrote on Wednesday evening. “I wish you all the best and look forward to the next chapter.” He did not give any reason for the separation.
The fissette led the 24-year-old to victories at the US Open 2020 and Australian Open 2021. Prior to this, she worked with Angelique Kerber, and looked after her at Wimbledon in 2018.
In total, Osaka has won four Grand Slam titles so far, the first two with German coach Sasha Bajin. She missed the most recent edition of Wimbledon due to an Achilles tendon injury and was knocked out in the first round of the Osaka French Open. In Paris, she withdrew from her second round match in 2021 and spoke about prolonged depression. Osaka is currently ranked 38th in the world.
