Sydney: Australia's Samantha Stosur has split with her long-time coach David Taylor, the former US Open champion said on Saturday.

Stosur, 29, currently the world number 11, said Australia Fed Cup captain Alicia Molik would fill in for Taylor in an interim role at the US Open, starting in New York on August 25, before she considered her long-term options.

"After six years working together my coach David Taylor and I have decided to part ways," Stosur said in a statement on the Tennis Australia website.
