Federer and Annacone Part Ways

Roger Federer and coach Paul Annacone have parted ways.  The 32-year-old Swiss superstar revealed the news in a statement posted on his official website.  The break comes after a poor run of form for the world No. 1, including an early exit at the Shanghai Masters to Gail Monfils.

Federer’s statement on the split:

After a terrific 3 ½ years working together, Paul and I have decided to move on to the next chapter in our professional lives. When we started together we had a vision of a 3 year plan to win another Grand Slam title and get back to the number #1 ranking. Along with many other goals and great memories, these 2 main goals were achieved. After numerous conversations culminating at the end of our most recent training block, we felt like this was the best time and path for both of us. Paul remains a dear friend, and we both look forward to continuing our friendship. I want to thank Paul for his help and the value he has added to me and my team.
