Simona Halep has announced Darren Cahill will return to coach the Wimbledon champion for the 2020 season.

Cahill split with Halep last November to take a one-year coaching hiatus, enabling him to spend more time with his family in Australia.

Two-time major winner Halep on Thursday revealed that long-time coach Cahill will be back in her corner next year.

The Romanian posted on social media: "I have some exciting news to share with you. After a year without him on my team, I'm happy to announce that Darren will be back by my side next season."

Halep added: "So, D, last time I killed you, and I'm playing to kill you again. I can't wait to finish what we started. See you soon!"

 

Former world number one Halep had a short spell working with Thierry van Cleemput after Cahill opted to take a break.

Halep won her first major title at the French Open last year and doubled her tally at the All England Club in July.
