Sharapova splits from coach Hogstedt

World number two Maria Sharapova has ended ties with her Swedish coach Thomas Hogstedt after working together for almost three years.

She announced the news on her official website Thursday. She stated that due to personal issues, Hogstedt will not be able to travel in the near future and they both agreed it was the right time to go their separate ways.

"I am very thankful for all his work, and wish him much success in the future," Sharapova said on her website.

The news comes after Sharapova crashed out of the second round at the 2013 Wimbledon Championships that ended earlier this month.

Hogstedt joined Sharapova at the end of 2010 season and helped her win the French Open and retain the number one ranking after coming out of her shoulder injury.

Sharapova will be announcing the name of her new coach in a few days.
