World No. 19 Stanislas Wawrinka has announced that he has ended his working relationship with his coach, Peter Lundgren. The pair had worked together since August 2010.

"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.
