The Ukrainian professional tennis player Dayana Yastremska has decided to part ways with her coach Sascha Bajin. The decision came after her defeat against US Player Madison Brengle in the second round of the US Open 2020. She lost to her in straight sets with the final score being 6-2 and 6-3.

Although, not many problems were going on between Dayana and coach Sascha but things became a little rusty when Sascha praised Naomi Osaka-her former associate on Twitter after she defeated Dayana in the Cincinnati Masters. This happened in late August 2020. Dayana later gave a hilarious reply on the same platform

After ending her co-operation with former coach Olivier Jeunehomme in October 2019, the rising next generation star decided to hire Sasha in November 2019. It was a decision she made keeping in mind the 2020 season.

Today, she informed the fans about her decision to part her ways with coach Sasha on social media.

Dayana Yastremska: 2020 season

A junior Grand Slam runner-up in both singles and doubles, Yastremska has won three WTA titles in four finals appearances. Currently, ranked. Currently ranked 25th at just the age of 20, Yastremska had a good start to the 2020 season under coach Sasha. She managed to reach the final at the Premier-level Adelaide International defeating 3 out of the top 20 players. She finished as runner up losing to Ashleigh Barty.

However, it was the Australian Open 2020 where the tables really turned. She defeated Kaja Juvan in the first round before falling to Caroline Wozniacki in the second round. In the doubles title, she did not proceed ahead after the first round.

She got eliminated before the quarters in Qatar Open where she lost in straight sets. In the Cincinnati masters too, she played well but ended up losing to Naomi Osaka in the round of 16 stage. Then came the US Open, where she could not play the same as she did in the previous season and faced a defeat in the second round.

The reasons for partying ways with her coach are not clear as of now. Some fans on social media are now even demanding her to have a female coach this time.
