At the end of 2018 it was announced that the relationship between Simona Halep and Darren Cahill was coming to an end for 2019 at least.
Darren who has been a rock in the success of Halep’s last few years announced he would be taking a year break from coaching to spend time with family at home in Australia.
Simona is in Sydney at the moment as she is set to begin her first tournament of the season and met up with Darren for lunch and an ice cream ahead of the tournament saying there will be plenty more dinners over the year.
I’d be greatly surprised if Darren isn’t anywhere near Melbourne for the Australian Open.
There has been no news on a new coach for Halep as of yet so we will have to wait and see but suggestions are there that it will just be the team which Simona posted a photo of in Sydney the other day.
