Currently ranked number one Carloine Wozniacki has decided to end her coaching relationship with her father Piotr after her recently poor form at two of the tournaments that make up the US Open Series, Toronto and Cincinnati.

They have discussed the option of going in another direction after her defeat at Wimbledon to Dominika Cibulkova, but the new coach had not yet come on board with Wozniacki so Piotr went to Toronto and Cincinnati with his daughter, as coach. During her recent loss to America’s rising star Christina McHale, Piotr was heard yelling at his daughter when he came on court to coach her.┬áThe identity of Caroline’s new coach is yet unknown but is said to be a former touring pro.

Wozniacki has been criticized for playing too defensively and many think that this issue is not helping her win her first Slam, so hopefully her new coach will guide her in a direction that will help her not only to win more matches at regular tournaments, but also make her mark on the Grand Slam scene. Her father has stated that he will support her no matter what and doesn’t hold any grudges regarding the split, only hoping for his daughter’s career to go to the next level.

Wozniacki’s next tournament will be next week in New Haven.
