Three-time French Open champion Gustavo Kuerten and coach Larri Passos are parting after 15 years. Kuerten, in a joint statement Monday with Passos, thanked him for ``15 years of conquests.'' The 27-year-old Brazilian said he wanted ``a different experience and travel without a coach.'' Passos helped Kuerten, nicknamed Guga, win 20 tournaments.
