"I would like to thank Peter for all the work together," said Wawrinka. "Thanks to him I have achieved back-to-back quarter-final spots at US Open 2010 and Australian Open 2011. He played a major role in my career and I am extremely grateful."
Lundgren, who has also coached Marcelo Rios, Roger Federer and Marat Safin, said, "It's been a privilege to work with Stan as his coach and I'm happy to have played my part in his career. Stan is a great player and I know he will continue to have the success his talent and hard work deserves."
During their 16-month partnership, Wawrinka won one ATP World Tour singles title at the 2011 Aircel Chennai Open (d. Berdych in SFs; l. to Malisse) and reached the last eight at the 2010 US Open (l. to Youzhny) and the 2011 Australian Open (l. to Federer).
Wawrinka added, "I've had a great relationship with Peter over the past year and I want to thank him for his positive contribution to my career. We have had a lot of success and fun working together."
Wawrinka, 26, will play out the season without a coach.
