Grigor Dimitrov has parted company with Andy Murray's former coach Dani Vallverdu after almost three years working together.
Dimitrov, who reached a career-high No 3 after winning the 2017 ATP Finals in London, now finds himself down to No 46 in the world rankings - in danger of falling outside the Top 50 for the first time since 2012.
"After my match yesterday Dani Vallverdu my long time coach and I sat down together," Dimitrov posted on Twitter.
"After three great years, we will be going our separate ways. We had some career highlights and amazing moments on court. I want to thank Dani for everything he has done for me and I wish him nothing but the best in his next endeavors."
The Bulgarian, upset by Taylor Fritz at the Madrid Open earlier this week, sat down with Vallverdu - who coached former British and World No 1 Andy Murray for four years between 2010 and 2014 - before deciding to call it a day.
