Laura Robson splits from coach

Published Add your comment

Laura Robson has split from her coach Miles Maclagan after just four months.

The 19-year-old linked up with Maclagen, who had previously worked with Andy Murray, but she will be looking for a new coach, following a disappointing end to her season.

Robson has been plagued with injury during her time in Asia, where she has been participating in a number of tournaments. She recently suffered a first round exit in the Japan Open, losing to Kimiko Date-Krumm.

Robson has suffered an end-of-season blip after a promising start to the year, she reached the last 16 at Wimbledon, and reached the third round at the US  Open, but has had trouble playing consistently well.

It was prior to this year's French Open that Robson split from her former Croatian coach Zeljko Krajan, and she will now take a two week break before looking for her new coach.

Robson said on her Facebook page: "I want to thank Miles for stepping in on quick notice to be my coach this summer.

"I have great respect for him and a person and coach and look forward to continuing our friendship.

"I will take a couple weeks off to refresh my mind and body and will keep my fans updated on my coaching situation."

Robson still remains Britain's number one, and is ranked in 46th place in the latest rankings.
