PRAGUE (AP) " U.S. Open finalist Karolina Pliskova has parted ways with coach Jiri Vanek, ending a partnership that earned five WTA titles.

With Vanek, who joined her in 2014, Pliskova jumped into the top 10 and is currently ranked sixth. She reached the U.S. Open final and qualified for the WTA Finals for the first time this year.
