SYDNEY (AP) - Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios has split with coach Todd Larkham less than a week before the start of Wimbledon, saying on his website Tuesday that the pair “mutually agreed” to part ways.

The 20-year-old Krygios says “it’s never an easy decision to end a coaching relationship … but I feel that this is the right decision for me at this time.”

He said he’ll work with Tennis Australia coaches through Wimbledon and will look at hiring a new coach after the tournament ends.

Larkham worked with Kyrgios for seven years during the Canberra player’s junior years. He rejoined his team after Kyrgios’ surprising run to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon last year which included an upset win over Rafael Nadal in the fourth round.
