Maailma esireketi Simona Halepi pikaaegne treener Darren Cahill teatas sotsiaalmeedia vahendusel, et perekondlikel põhjustel võtab ta treeneriametist 12-kuulise pausi.

Cahill tõi üheks vaheaasta tegemise põhjuseks tahtmise rohkem kodus olla, et näha oma laste kasvamist. Cahill tänab Halepit suurepärase koostöö eest viimase nelja aasta vältel ning tunnistab, et tal on tegelikult unistuste amet, kuna tal on võimalik töötada koos nii andeka ja pühendunud naisterahvaga. Cahill jätkab töötamist ESPN-i tiimiga Austraalia lahtistel, Wimbledoni ja US Openi turniiridel.

Cahill ja Halep alustasid koostööd 2015. aastal, mille järel kerkis rumeenlanna maailma esinumbriks 2017. aasta lõpus. Esikohal lõpetas ta ka tänavu teist aastat järjest. Halepi karjääri suurimaks võiduks on Prantsusmaa lahtiste tennisemeistrivõistluste esikoht.

I would like to announce that Simona and I will not be continuing our partnership in 2019 purely for family reasons on my part. . After much thought and discussion, and many years with 30 plus weeks on the road away from my family, I've decided to take a 12 month break from coaching to be home more for support as our children enter important stages of their lives with the final year of high school, sports and college preparations all becoming more time consuming. . I'd like to thank Simona for the last 4 amazing years. Her understanding, personality, work ethic, generosity and professionalism made it a pleasure to stand by her side as her coach. She's a young woman of total class and someone I respect greatly which is something more important than any result achieved. . Basically, I had the dream job and I want to thank her for making it that way, and the opportunity to work with someone so talented and dedicated. . I wish Simo and her team nothing but continued success and I look forward to supporting her from the sidelines next year. . A special mention to Theo Cercel, Andrei Cristofor and Virginia Ruzici for all of the support, belief, friendship and great work through the years. . And finally, to the Romanian fans that show unwavering passion and support for their girl. You guys rock, seriously. Thanks for adopting this Aussie as one of your own for the last 4 years and making me feel welcome in your country. Mulțumesc ❤️ . I will continue to work with the ESPN team at the AO, Wimbledon & US Open tournaments in 2019. . Cheers, Darren
