Stan Wawrinka Splits With Longtime Coach Magnus Norman

Stan Wawrinka has split with longtime coach Magnus Norman.  Wawrinka announced the news of the split on Instagram.  Norman has been Wawrinka’s coach since 2013. During his time as a coach, Wawrinka won 3 grand slam titles and a total of 13 ATP titles.

During his time with Norman, Wawrinka was able to successfully challenge the Big Four – Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray, at their peak. Wawrinka underwent two knee surgeries in 2017. His ranking slipped to No. 263 but his rankings have since bounced back to No. 13.

After 8 great years together @swedennorman and I have decided to part ways by mutual consent. We have had a amazingly strong, enjoyable and hugely successful partnership. We reached the height of this sport together and I want to thank him for helping me win everything that I could ever have dreamt of winning. He’s been a great coach, friend and mentor and will always be a dear friend. I want to publicly thank him for all his hard work dedication and commitment in making me a better player over the years. Winning 3 grand slams has been a life changing experience for me and I could not have done that without him. Wishing him all the best in his next chapter in his life

Wawrinka skipped the 2020 US Open due to the health situation in New York. He will participate in the upcoming French Open.
