MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Mid-season WTA coaching blues

Halftime is nearly over. It’s not the best time to look for a new coach – presumably, the better ones are currently employed.

But that’s the reality for former Wimbledon champions Angelique Kerber and Garbiñe Muguruza.

2018 champion Kerber announced Friday that after eight months, she and Rainer Schuettler had parted ways after Kerber’s second-round loss to lucky loser Lauren Davis.

Muguruza and Sumyk split after the 2017 champion’s first-round loss to qualifier Beatriz Haddad Maia.

Muguruza has entered San Jose. Kerber’s next tournament will be Toronto.

It’ll be interesting to see who – if anyone – comes with them.
