Marius Copil, the Romanian who reached his career high of No. 56 after the Australian Open, has parted ways with compatriot Andrei Pavel after just six months.
Last summer, Copil made the coaching change to try to get to the next level. He reached the Basel final in October.
“The level of my game rose and we made an exceptional result together, but at this point we both decided it was better to stop,” Copil wrote on Facebook.
Of course, this immediately leads to speculation that Pavel will return to Team Halep, as she’s currently coachless.
