Halep to reunite with coach Darren Cahill

By AAP Newswire

Two-time major champion Simona Halep says she is reuniting with Australian coach Darren Cahill after a year apart.

Halep said in a video posted on Twitter on Thursday that "Darren will be back by my side next season" and that she "can't wait to finish what we started."

The duo worked together for four years in the past. During that time, Halep won the 2018 French Open for her first grand slam title and twice finished No.1 in the WTA year-end rankings.

She also was the runner-up at three major tournaments.

In November 2018, Cahill said he was taking a 12-month break from coaching to spend more time with his family and pursue TV broadcasting roles.

Without him as her coach, Halep won Wimbledon this July.

She is currently ranked No. 6 following her second-round loss to Taylor Townsend at the US Open.
