Federer to split from idol Edberg.

TENNIS ROGER Federer has split from his coach Stefan Edberg.

The world number three has been working with Edberg for two years, during which time he has won 11 tournaments including three top-level ATP Masters 1000 events.

Both men specified that the partnership was initially intended to be for the 2014 season alone.

Edberg will be replaced on Federer's coaching team by Croatian Ivan Ljubicic, working alongside long-time coach Severin Luthi.

Federer said: "After two very successful years, I would like to thank Stefan Edberg, my childhood idol, for agreeing to join my team. It was a dream come true.

"Although it was supposed to only be for 2014, Stefan was great and agreed to extend the partnership through this year which I really appreciated."
