Naomi Osaka splits with coach after winning Australian Open

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

Osaka won her first WTA title at the BNP Paribas Open, last March, following which she went on to clinch 2018 US Open title and 2019 Australian Open.

Bajin responded: "Thank you Naomi I wish you nothing but the best as well". I wish you nothing but the best as well. "Thank you for letting me be part of this", he said.

Bajin won't take long to attract new suitors - he has previously worked with Williams, Victoria Azarenka and Caroline Wozniacki.

Bajin replied to Osaka with a tweet of his own.

Osaka withdrew from this week's Qatar Open, citing a back injury. "Winning back-to-back Grand Slam tournaments is a rare and special achievement, and I'm thrilled these results have propelled Naomi to the top of the women's game", said Evert, the first ever WTA world number one.

The 21-year-old added the Australian Open to her growing list of honours in January and consequently topped the world rankings for the first time in her career.

She was born in Japan - her mother is Japanese, her father is Haitian - and moved to the United States when she was 3.
