Johanna Konta parts company with coach Michael Joyce

Johanna Konta has failed to progress past the second round at the Grand Slams this season under Michael Joyce

Johanna Konta will begin her search for a fourth new coach in three years after splitting with Michael Joyce.

She is expected to play the WTA event in Moscow next week before bringing 2018 to a close and trying to pin down a replacement in time for the new season.

It has been a tough season, at least in the grand slam events, with first-round losses at the United States and French Opens and second-round exits at Wimbledon and the Australian Open.

Konta failed to progress past the second round at any of this year's Grand Slams and, after winning just one of four matches she has featured in during the Asian swing, has made a decision to look elsewhere.

Joyce spent six years as part of Maria Sharapova's team, the Russian winning the US Open and the Australian Open as well as becoming world number one while the pair worked together.

Konta has failed to match her sensational 2017 form, which saw her reach the semifinals of Wimbledon.

And so, for the third year in a row, Konta has decided to make a change.

The 27-year-old did, however, hand Serena Williams the biggest defeat of her career, 6-1 6-0, at the Silicon Valley Classic in San Jose in August.

She has also moved management companies, and is now with StarWing Sports, which has enjoyed success with Stan Wawrinka and signed Kyle Edmund this time a year ago.
