2-time major champion Li Na, coach Carlos Rodriguez part ways after nearly 2 years

  • Print

LONDON - Two-time major champion Li Na and coach Carlos Rodriguez are parting ways after nearly two years together.

Li's agent, Max Eisenbud, says Rodriguez is no longer able to travel on the tennis circuit. Instead, Rodriguez will spend more time at his tennis academy in Beijing.

In August 2012, Li hired Rodriguez, who used to coach seven-time Grand Slam title winner Justine Henin.

Rodriguez helped Li win this year's Australian Open, which she added to her championship at the 2011 French Open. She is the only tennis player from China to win a Grand Slam singles title.

Li lost in the first round at Roland Garros in May, and in the third round at Wimbledon last week.
