Sharapova dumps Jimmy Connors after losing to Sloane Stephens. Quirky stuff in Cincinnati!


Can you ever believe it? One match.. and that's it... !

Sharapova’s camp shouldn’t be the most relaxed one. Maria was shocked by Larcher de Brito in the second round in Wimbledon to then pull out a couple of tournaments (Stanford and Toronto) for a hip injury. Then there was an interesting idea...

Calling Jimbo…

While injured, Maria hired Jimmy Connors as her coach to try to climb the rankings once again (now she is world no.3).

Maria said that she was so happy to have a coach with such a fiery character.. but maybe that was a bit too much!

…and say goodbye

Well…it seems that Connors was rather upset by Maria’s performance against Sloane Stephens when she lost 2-6 7-6 (5) 6-3 in Cincinnati.

The American legend kept on shaking the head to even leave the venue before the match ended (and that doesn’t look nice).

So according to The Times that was already too much for the Russian beauty that said bye bye to Jimbo.

Well... that was quick!
