COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Former top-ranked Caroline Wozniacki has fired her coach Ricardo Sanchez of Spain after just two months.
Wozniacki’s father Piotr told Wednesday’s edition of the Ekstra Bladet that his daughter didn’t get “new impulses” from the cooperation with Sanchez.
The Spaniard was hired in early December, only to see Wozniacki lose to defending champion Kim Clijsters in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open and her No. 1 ranking. Wozniacki remains without a Grand Slam title and is now ranked sixth.
Piotr Wozniacki will no go back to coaching his daughter on his own.
Sanchez told the newspaper that he found it “impossible” to have a system with two coaches and that “Caroline only got confused.”
Ekstra Bladet quotes Sanchez as saying “Piotr has his system, I have mine.”
