ATP World No. 2 Novak Djokovic and two-time former Grand Slam finalist Todd Martin are no longer working together. Djokovic hired Martin – to work in tandem with longtime coach Marian Vajda – in August.

Martin, a former Australian Open and US Open finalist, told ATPWorldTour.com: "My time with Novak was interesting and constructive. Our work together was successful based on his progress in achieving a career high ranking of No. 2. I was committed to a process to help Novak reach his potential, but in the end we had different thoughts on that process and how to achieve this goal. I appreciate the opportunity that was given to me and wish Novak success moving forward."

Djokovic told ESPN.com: "We tried to work with two coaches, and Todd is a fantastic person who has so much experience and he shared everything with me. But it just did not work out in the end and we separated with no hard feelings."

Djokovic is competing this week at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament. He will continue to work with Vajda.

In other coaching news, Fernando Gonzalez is no longer working with coach Martin Rodriguez and trainer Carlos Burgos. “We met at a period that was very important in my career. I am very grateful for everything I shared and learned with them and wish them the best of luck," Gonzalez said.
