Sharapova, coach split after loss

Maria Sharapova says she and coach Thomas Hogstedt have decided

to ”part ways” after nearly three years working together.

On her personal website, Sharapova says Hogstedt will be unable

to travel in the immediate future, and that they both agreed she

should find another coach.

Sharapova, who won three Grand Slam events from 2004-2008 but

has won only the 2012 French Open title since, lost in the second

round at Wimbledon this year. She says she expects to announce a

new coach in a few days.
