Auger-Aliassime ousted in opening round from Paris by Cilic
Canadian tennis star Felix Auger-Aliassime is parting ways with longtime coach Guillaume Marx.
The 20-year-old from Montreal made the announcement Thursday on his Twitter feed.
While no reason was given for the split, Auger-Aliassime said he and Marx are ending their partnership "in the utmost integrity and respect for one another."
Auger-Aliassime is 23-17 in 2020 and advanced to three of his six tournament finals this year. He is still looking for his first ATP title.
Auger-Aliassime, ranked 21st in the world, said he will continue to work with coach Frédéric Fontang and the rest of his team.
Earlier this week, Auger-Aliassime was eliminated in the first round of the Paris Masters. During the match he needed a medical break after experiencing pain in his hip from a sudden movement.
Marx is a French former player who is now based in Canada and previously worked with Canadian veteran Milos Raonic.
