World number one Serena Williams’ latest update on twitter has sparked rumours of her splitting with coach and companion Patrick Mouratoglou.

Williams tweeted on Tuesday, “Me. Mine. Alone. Myself. I. One. Solo. Unaccompanied.”

There were already some reports surfacing of a down slide in relations between Williams and Mouratoglou and this tweet by the former has strengthened them.

If these rumours are true then Serena’s poor performance by her standards would have been a reason. Unexpectedly, Serena has not fared well so far in this season. She was feeling quite low after her shock semi-final loss at the hands of Alize Cornet at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships last week.

She said after the match, "I'm a wee bit embarrassed. She played really well. I just didn't play today. I tried, though. I don't think I have made that many errors in a match in I think at least three years, maybe four years."

Williams and Mouratoglou are said to be in a relation for almost last two years now but they have never accepted that officially. However, they have not even denied these rumours publicly.

Serena’s performance witnessed new heights after Mouratoglou started coaching her as she captured. She won four of the six Grand Slams from second half of 2012 to the end of 2013. However, she decided to stay from the pre season camp run by Mouratoglou in Mauritius this year.

They were often seen enjoying vacations together and pictured in some intimate poses but they travelled separately after the Dubai event.
