Maria Sharapova’s new coach is now her former coach.

Former tennis great Jimmy Connors took the job a mere 34 days ago, and for Maria, it looks like it was 34 days too much.

“Not the right fit for this time in my career,” Sharapova said in a statement.

The relationship seemed deteriorate soon after her loss to American Sloane Stephens, reports Evan Hilbert of CBSSports.com.
