In an statement that took everyone by surprise, Juan Martín del Potro announced this Friday that he has split with his coach, Franco Davin, and his trainer, Martiniano Orazi, both part of his team for many years.

The Argentine, still sidelined due to a wrist surgery, made the announcement via his Facebook account:

“Hello everyone. I wanted to tell you that Franco and Martiniano are no longer part of my team. I’m really grateful for the years we’ve worked together and I wish them the very best. I’m also thankful to their families for their warm support that goes beyond tennis.”
