There could be a further change of manager in the WTA and, this time, the indiscretion concerns Emma Raducanu. The young British promise, archived the story of the US Open, as Simona Halep chose to interrupt her working relationship with her tennis father, Andrew Richardson, who raised her, and from that moment on her results have failed.
No one is sure that one thing has influenced the other, the fact is that the tennis player of Romanian origins on her mother’s side and Chinese on her father’s side has no longer thrown any sharp from the triumph at Flushing Meadows.
For her too, therefore, it seems that a new collaboration is on the horizon and the name of Riccardo Piatti appears. The British, in recent weeks, has supported her training in Bordighera, which is why it is not excluded that she can rely on the former coach of Jannik Sinner to follow up on the Grand Slam success and finally explode.
Simona Halep with Patrick Mouratoglou
There is an air of news on the way to the ascent for Simona Halep. The Romanian is, at the moment, far from being the great tennis player who commanded the WTA ranking in 2017, physical problems and technical instability have removed the spotlight from her, sending her to the twentieth place in the world rankings.
After the surprising separation from his historic coach Darren Cahill, with whom in six years she won two Grand Slam titles (Roland Garros and Wimbledon) and she became number 1, and the bankruptcy period with the Dobre-Marcu duo, here is the hypothesis according to which Halep would have decided to put herself in the hands of Patrick Mouratoglou.
The 30-year-old from Constanta, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, recently chose to train at the French coach’s headquarters in Nice. Everything, however, remains in the court of hypotheses until official communication, also because the Romanian had declared that she was in no hurry to change coach: however, things seem to go in the right direction with the historic coach of Serena Williams.
