Osaka splits with coach 2 weeks after 2nd major title

Naomi Osaka and Sascha Bajin

The 21-year-old beat Petra Kvitova in three sets in the Australian Open final on January 26.

"Hey everyone, I will no longer be working together with Sascha".

The 21-year-old Osaka, who won at Melbourne Park last month to add to her US Open crown from last year, announced on Monday that her successful partnership with Bajin had come to an end.

World tennis number one Naomi Osaka has split from her coach Sascha Bajin just 17 days after completing back-to-back Grand Slam victories at the Australian Open.

Bajin had suggested that he was in for the "long haul" with Osaka in an interview late previous year, but no explanation has yet been given for the decision for the pair to split.

The Wildcats need to do some serious winning, and although an NCAA Tournament bid seems unlikely, it's time to play for pride. CJ Elleby almost had a triple-double for Washington State in that one with 10 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.

Bajin replied to Osaka with a tweet of his own.

Bajin responded: "Thank you Naomi I wish you nothing but the best as well". He thanked her and wrote: "I wish you nothing but the best as well".

He is a former hitting partner of Grand Slam champions Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka and Caroline Wozniacki.

Osaka, who withdrew from this week's Qatar Open due to a back injury, has not yet announced a replacement for Bajin.
