Double Grand Slam champion Simona Halep will no longer be coached by Darren Cahill.

Halep announced the separation “after six wonderful years of collaboration” via a Twitter post Wednesday, saying that she and Cahill “decided it was time to end our working relationship.”

Halep won Roland Garros in 2018, beating Sloane Stephens in the final and Wimbledon in 2019, beating Serena Williams in the final.

The Romanian, who turns 30 on Monday, also reached first place in the standings. She is # 14 this week.

Halep lost in the fourth round of the US Open this month. She missed the French Open, Wimbledon and the Tokyo Olympics after tearing her left calf at the Italian Open in May.

In Wednesday’s social media post, Halep wrote: “Thank you D for everything, for making me a better tennis player and a better person.”

Cahill responded on Twitter, writing: “No, thank you Simo for allowing me to have an incredible journey with you” and calling Halep a “great player but above all, a great person and a friend”.
