Nick Kyrgios splits from his coach just days before Wimbledon

Nick Kyrgios splits with coach Todd Larkham less than a week before the start of Wimbledon

Nick Kyrgios has split with coach Todd Larkham less than a week before the start of Wimbledon.

The 20-year-old Kyrgios, who withdrew from this week’s event in Nottingham due to ill illness, announced on Tuesday that he and Larkham had “mutually agreed” to part ways.

“It’s never an easy decision to end a coaching relationship and to do so prior to the start of a grand slam is even more difficult,” Kyrgios said in a statement. “But I feel that this is the right decision for me at this time.”

“I’ve worked with Todd on and off for many years and he has helped me immensely. I am very grateful for everything Todd has taught me and helped me with, especially during the last year.

“While our working relationship has ended, Todd and I will remain friends as he has been a very important person in my life.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Todd for everything he has done for me, both personally and professionally, and wish him the best.”

The main draw at Wimbledon gets under way on Monday 29 June.
