Simona Halep is back home in Romania prepping for the grass season with a familiar face: Darren Cahill. The two, plus Halep’s official coach Daniel Dobre, are training at the Stejari Country Club in Bucharest.

Halep just wrapped up a Roland Garros run to the quarterfinals, where she lost to Amanda Anisimova. The world No. 3 had no reasons to panic despite being the defending champion, telling press 2019 is a chill year.

Cahill ended a long stint as Halep’s coach at the end of 2018 to spend more time with his family. He’s still very much involved with the game and with helping Halep.
