Sharapova fires Jimmy Connors
That was fast.
Connors tweeted after the loss that "Every good round starts with a bogey -- not the start we wanted, so back to work tomorrow."

But there will be no tomorrow for the popular pairing of Sharapova, currently ranked No. 3 in the world rankings, and the eight-time major winner on the men's side.
Sharapova is expected to enter play at the upcoming U.S. Open without a coach.
Connors coached Andy Roddick for two years before resigning in 2008. He briefly worked with Sharapova before the 2008 Australian Open.
