Naomi Osaka in shock split with tennis coach

Naomi Osaka and Sascha Bajin

Noami Osaka dropped a bomb on Monday announcing that she and coach Sascha Bajin split.

"I will no longer be working together with Sascha", Osaka wrote.

She became the first Asian to hold the top ranking after downing Czech Petra Kvitova in a tight final in Australia after beating Serena Williams in a memorable US Open final a year ago in which she won many fans for her grace under pressure.

An ex-ATP tour player, Bajin won 13 Grand Slams while in the Serena camp, including all four major tournaments and a hat-trick of Wimbledon and US Open titles in a partnership that lasted from 2008 to 2015.

"Thank you for letting me be part of this", he responded to Osaka's tweet.

Osaka, who is scheduled to compete in Dubai next week, began sounding out potential replacements late past year, local media reported.

Under Bajin, Osaka rose from world number 72 at the start of 2018 to the summit of the rankings little over a year later.

She was born in Japan - her mother is Japanese, her father is Haitian - before moving to the United States when she was three years old.

Osaka is the first player from Asia to grace the top of the women's or men's world tennis rankings.
