After working together in bits and pieces lately, Simona Halep has officially singed-up with Darren Cahill as her new coach, according to UbiTennis. The duo is all set to kick-off their full-time camaraderie from the prestigious Wimbledon Championships that is scheduled to commence on June 29 at All England Club.

Cahill – who has formerly worked with a number of players including Lleyton Hewitt, Andy Murray, Ana Ivanovic, Fernando Verdasco, Daniela Hantuchova, Sorana Cirstea, and Andre Aggasi – frequently trained with Halep during the recently-concluded clay season.

This comes after the 23-year-old Halep parted ways with Victor Ionita, whom she had appointed 8 months back in November last year after splitting with Wim Fissette.

Halep, currently ranked No. 3 in the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) rankings, is busy gearing up for Wimbledon by featuring in tune-up event at Birmingham, where she lost out in the quarter-finals to Kristina Mladenovic.
