Bye, Dad: Tennis star Sofia Kenin fires father as her coach

Sofia Kenin says she no longer will be coached by her father. The 2020 Australian Open champion has announced just weeks before the French Open that she is “putting together a new technical team.” She wrote about the switch on Instagram on Friday. Kenin said it was not an easy decision. The 22-year-old American is No. 4 in the WTA rankings. But she has had a rough 2021 so far, with seven wins and seven losses, including a second-round exit at the Australian Open. The French Open starts May 30. Kenin was the runner-up in Paris last year.
