Malta Independent - - SPORT -

US Open fi­nal­ist Karolina Pliskova has parted ways with coach Jiri Vanek, end­ing a part­ner­ship that earned five WTA ti­tles. The de­ci­sion by the 24-yearold Pliskova came af­ter she helped the Czech team re­tain the Fed Cup ti­tle with a 3-2 vic­tory over France over the week­end. With Vanek, who joined her in 2014, Pliskova jumped into the top 10 and is cur­rently ranked sixth. She reached the U.S. Open fi­nal and qual­i­fied for the WTA Fi­nals for the first time this year. It was not im­me­di­ately clear who would re­place Vanek.
