Stosur flies solo at Wimbledon

GOLD Coaster Sam Stosur will head into Wimbledon without a coach.

The news comes as she announced a split from her previous coach Miles Maclagan this week.

After frustrating results in 2014, the world No.17 decided to cut ties with the Brit after just seven months working together.


“I’ve found the last few days, you go out and practise what you want to practise on and you probably cut yourself a bit more slack,” Stosur said.

“Working hard and doing what I need to be doing as far as hours on court or drills isn’t something that I need somebody yelling at me to ‘do this, do this, do this’.

“I love training anyway so I think it’s a matter of being precise in what you want to do and how you want to work on it.”

Her first round match next Tuesday marks the second time in nine months that the top ranked player goes into a grand slam without a coach.
