French tennis star Gael Monfils has split with his coach Jan de Witt after being together for eight months.

The 16th-ranked maverick took it to his official Twitter account to divulge the news of the split, which comes just days after he crashed out in the first round (lost to Jerzy Janowicz) of the Cincinnati Masters.

“I would like to announce that my coach and myself have decided to part ways. I would like to thank him for all his help and hard work,” he wrote.

Monfils and his compatriot Gilles Simon used to jointly take delivery of coaching tips from de Witt, who undertook the collaboration from the French Open earlier this year.

This comes days ahead of the prestigious US Open 2015 that kicks-off later this year in New York.
