For the first time since 2002, Roger Federer didn’t reach the grand slam finals. In fact, he suffered his earliest grand slam exit in a decade. Because of this, Federer has decided to cut ties with his long-time coach, Paul Annacone.
On his website, Federer states that he and Annacone have had a great run, have accomplished many goals together, and that the two still remain dear friends. It is likely that Federer will continue to work with Swiss Davis Cup captain Severin Luethi, as he tries to earn a spot at the year-end championship in London.
According to an article on CNN, “Federer said on the eve of the tournament that he was looking forward to a ‘great’ 2014 and his decision to split with Annacone suggests that he is indeed determined to win another major rather that simply linger in the top 10.”
