Sharapova and Connors Part Ways

Maria Sharapova’s short-lived coaching flirtation with Jimmy Connors has come to an abrupt end.

After only a single match and a small number of practice sessions, Sharapova made the call to advise Connors his services were no longer required.

The only match for which they were together saw the Russian world number 3 beaten by Sloane Stephens in the second round of the Cincinnati Masters.

Connors, a former world number one and 8-time major winner, had previously coached Andy Roddick in a part-time role.
