The pair have mutually agreed to part ways before Andy builds up towards the 2024 season.  The time which they have spent together this season has been largely limited to the Grand Slam events.   British duo Mark Hilton and Jonny O'Mara, who have been working alongside Lendl this year, will share coaching duties going forward.

"I will look back with some great memories of the time Andy and I worked together," Lendl said.  "He's as hard a worker as there is and the sport is better because of him.  I wish him only the best in the years to come."

Andy will begin the 2024 season at the Brisbane International which starts on 31st December.
