Simona Halep is currently working with Adrian Marcu who is a former tennis professional from Romania.

“At first I thought about it a bit, as I usually do when an offer comes in, but clearly it was a difficult offer to turn down. I want Simona to win as many games as possible so that she can climb the leaderboard. If all players are progressing and doing better, you have to too. I wish it were more aggressive, we’re working on it. Can she still win Grand Slams? Sure, she still has a lot of options, but we don’t want to think that far.” Adrian said regarding the top-rated professional.

The once no.1 Halep parted ways with her previous coach Darren Cahill who had been with her for the previous 6 years in September 2021.

Halep announced the split via a Twitter post that read, “After six wonderful years working together, @darren_cahill and I have decided that it’s time to end our working relationship. Thank you D for everything, for making me a better tennis player and a better person.”
