Berdych Splits With Coach Vallverdu
Two had been working together since December 2014
Tomas Berdych is no longer working with coach Daniel Vallverdu. Berdych and Vallverdu both posted the news on social media on Monday. “My results lately have not been what I expected. As I am not a tennis player at the beginning of his career I have to act quickly when I feel that I need a change,” Berdych wrote.
The two had been working together since December 2014. Since then, the 30-year-old Berdych has posted a 76-32 record and has won two ATP World Tour titles, the Shenzhen Open and the If Stockholm Open. He also reached a career-high of No. 4 in the Emirates ATP Rankings.
“I've enjoyed working with Tomas and the challenge to help him achieve his professional goals,” Vallverdu wrote on Twitter. “However we have decided not to continue with our working relationship. I wish Tomas all the best moving forward.”
Berdych, No. 8 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, is preparing for Roland Garros and said he has not decided who will be his new coach.
