Stan Wawrinka admits he was "shocked" that Magnus Norman quit as his coach and is considering Paul Annacone as a replacement.

Wawrinka eyes Annacone reunion

Wawrinka won three Grand Slam titles during his four years working with Norman, but now the Swede has cited family reason for his decision to end his association with the Swiss ace back in October.

The 32-year-old is on the lookout for a new permanent coach and will continue to work with his present team until he can get a new man on board.

Having teamed up with Roger Federer’s former coach for the grass-court campaign, a reunion might be on the cards.

"It was a great disappointment for me, a shock, in some moments of your career, you expect to be able to count with your closest ones, and the time he announced it surprised me," Wawrinka told reporters.

"And who will be my new coach? At this point, I'm still with Yannick Fatteber, and I will need somebody for long-term cooperation, for at least three to four years.

"I have some names on the list. Yes, Paul Annacone is on the coach list, but I have not made a decision yet. I do not know if this will happen because his agenda is busy."
