Ana and Nemanja Kontic have ended their coaching partnership by mutual agreement.
Kontic’s contract expired after Wimbledon and, after amicable discussions, the pair decided not to renew it.
Under Kontic’s guidance Ana won three WTA titles this season. She reached the third round of the French Open and exited Wimbledon at the same stage last week.
Ana plans to appoint a new coach in the coming weeks.

The winner of the June competition is Victor Souza from Brazil.
He correctly gave "2007" as the answer to the question, "In which year did Ana last lose a match on court Philippe Chatrier at Roland Garros?"
Congratulations to him, he wins an adidas item signed by Ana.
The July competition will be launched shortly.
Ana’s Wimbledon campaign ended in the third round as she fell 6-4, 3-6, 6-1 to world No.19 Sabine Lisicki. The match, which started on Saturday evening, was interrupted twice and underwent a momentum switch at least as that eventually saw the German emerge victorious after one hour and 51 minutes of play.
Ana’s third round clash with world No.19 Sabine Lisicki at the Wimbledon Championships has been suspended overnight at 1-1 in the second set. The match didn’t start before 8pm local time due rain in London and was halted shortly after the German had taken the opening set 6-4.
Ana takes on world No.19 Sabine Lisicki in the third round of The Championships on Saturday. It will be the just the second meeting between the pair.
Ana won their first encounter, at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart earlier this year. However, that match was on clay, which appears to be the German’s weakest surface.
24-year-old Lisicki, with her big serve and dangerous forehand, reached the Wimbledon final 12 months ago, where she lost to Marion Bartoli. En route she beat 17-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams.
The annual StarCards charity auction is now open, and offers the opportunity to bid on items signed by Ana. Proceeds from the auction will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Ana is the official celebrity supporter this year. As well as Ana, many other players have signed cards, including Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Agnieszka Radwańska, Victoria Azarenka, Laura Robson, Caroline Wozniacki, Na Li and Petra Kvitova.
Ana secured a place in the third round of The Championships at Wimbledon after beating world No.66 Jie Zheng from China 6-4, 6-0 in impressive fashion. The 26-year-old produced a brilliant performance that included twenty winners and just nine unforced errors during the 61 minute match.
However, as it may have been predicted prior to the match, Zheng started brightly on court No.3: the Chinese held sweet memories from beating Ana at this event six years ago and she clearly entered today’s contest with confidence.
