Emma Raducanu has split from coach Torben Beltz after only five months, stating a “new training model” was needed.

“I want to thank Torben for his coaching, professionalism and dedication over the last half a year,” Raducanu, 19, said.

“He has a huge heart and I have enjoyed our strong chemistry during the time together.

“I feel the best direction for my development is to transition to a new training model with the LTA supporting in the interim.”

Whoever takes over from German Beltz, 45, will be her fourth coach in a year.

The LTA’s head of women’s coaching Iain Bates will work with Raducanu in Madrid this week.
