Robson splits from 'coach' MacLagan after just four months
Wimbledon tennis star Laura Robson has split with coach Miles MacLagan after only four months working together.
The 20-year-old, who made the last 16 of this year's Wimbledon under MacLagan's tutorship, has won just three matches in four tournaments.
MacLagan, who coaches at the Sutton Tennis & Squash Club, became Robson's coach - although he was never officially titled as such - in July after she ended a nine-month partnership with Croat coach Zeljko Krajan.
However, Robson said: "Miles and I have decided not to continue our partnership.
"I want to thank him for stepping in on quick notice to be my coach this summer. I have great respect for him as a person and coach and look forward to continuing our friendship.
""I will take a couple weeks off to refresh my mind and body and will keep my fans updated on my coaching situation."
