Garbine Muguruza parts ways with her coach Sam Sumyk

Muguruza and coach Sam

Garbine Muguruza (finally) splits with her coach Sam Sumyk.

The 2-time slam champion was having a rather dysfunctional relationship with Sumik since she hired him back in 2015. The Spaniard won the French Open in 2016 and Wimbledon in 2017; furthermore, she was ranked no.1 back in September 2017. However, she has never managed to find continuity in her results, and now she is just ranked no.27.

Why the split

Garbine couldn’t stomach her latest disappointment in Wimbledon where she lost in the opening match 6-4 6-4 to the world no.121 Beatriz Haddad Maia.

The statement

Garbine released the following statement on Social Media with the following post

“Few words to announce the end of an Extraordinary ride. 2 Grand Slams and World N 1. Beyond grateful for these last 4 years. Merci Sam”

The reaction of her fans was pretty favorable.
