Stan Ends Partnership With Magnus


Stan Wawrinka announced via Instagram today that he will no longer be working with former World No. 2 and coach Magnus Norman.

The 35-year-old won 13 tour-level trophies in partnership with Norman, who joined Wawrinka in April 2013 when the Swiss was at No. 17 in the FedEx ATP Rankings.

“After eight great years together @swedennorman and I have decided to part ways by mutual consent,” Wawrinka wrote on Instagram. “We have had an amazingly strong, enjoyable and hugely successful partnership. We reached the height of this sport together and I want to thank him for helping me win everything that I could ever [have] dreamt of winning.

“He’s been a great coach, friend and mentor and will always be a dear friend. I want to publicly thank him for all his hard work, dedication and commitment in making me a better player over the years. Winning three Grand Slams has been a life changing experience for me and I could not have done that without him. Wishing him all the best in his next chapter in his life!”

Wit Norman, Wawrinka won titles at the 2014 Australian Open (d. Nadal), 2015 Roland Garros (d. Djokovic) and the 2016 US Open (d. Djokovic). He also reached a career-high No. 3 on 27 January 2014.
