“Thank you D for everything, for making me a better tennis player and a better person.”

Australian Cahill cut her collaboration with Halep on hold in 2019 for family reasons, but kept in touch with her during the Wimbledon triumph that year, where she beat Serena Williams in the final.


The pair reunited in 2020 but were largely separated by the Covid-19 pandemic and Halep’s calf injury that excluded her from Roland Garros and Wimbledon this year.
