After four of the most successful years of Stan Wawrinka’s career, Magnus Norman has decided not to continue with Stan next season.
“After much thought I have decided to dedicate my future to my family. With two young kids at home, now is the right time for me to be with them. I could not have had a better player to work with and this has been one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make”, said the Swedish coach and he continued:
“I’m really honoured to have worked with Stan who is a great tennis player, but more importantly a fantastic person. I wanna thank the whole team behind Stan for all the work over the last four years. It’s been a teamwork and a privilege from the first day.”
Under Norman’s tutelage Wawrinka went on to win the Australian Open 2014, Roland Garros 2015 and the US Open 2016. He also reached career high of 3 in the world.
“I would like to thank Magnus for the amazing 4 years we had together. I will always be grateful for the work and the time he spent on me to make me improve and become a 3 times Grand Slam Champion.
He was not only part of my team but also part of the family.
For now I’m focusing on my rehabilitation and I will take time to decide with my team the necessary next steps.”
