Canadian tennis star Milos Raonic and coach Richard Krajicek have parted ways, Raonic announced on Twitter Thursday.

Raonic and Krajicek’s partnership lasted less than six months.

“Today was my first practice with Richard Krajicek. It’s great to have Richard, alongside my team, for the upcoming season in my attempt to reach new and higher goals in 2017,” Raonic posted on his Instagram account in December. “I worked with Richard for a few days already last year before Australian Open and I am sure Richard with his experience and being a Wimbledon champion can help me reach my goals. I look forward to doing great things together.”

The 26-year-old Raonic saw his ATP ranking drop from No. 3 to No. 6 while working with Krajicek. The 2016 Wimbledon finalist most recently suffered a disappointing loss in the fourth round of the French Open at the hands of Pablo Carreno Busta.
