After only two months working for Caroline Wozniacki, coach Ricardo Sanchez has been dropped from her team. It appears as though the split was caused after Caroline’s father Piotr, still looked like he was the sole lead in coaching his daughter.

After losing at the Australian Open, Wozniacki has gone down in the rankings to No. 4 in the world. It is unknown who she will hire as a new coach or if she will hire another coach at all, but she hasn’t been confident on the road to a Slam win ever since claiming that number one spot. Her father Piotr is quoted saying that his daughter just didn’t get a lot of inspiration from Sanchez and he couldn’t handle being the one in the middle of the father-daughter coaching relationship.

Hopefully because of her drop, Caroline will find a new hunger to pursue her goal of becoming a Grand Slam champion. She actually has a good chance at the upcoming Roland Garros in May. Well known for her ability to play defense, on a surface like clay it’s really important to use the maximum amount of your agility to get to every ball, so hopefully she will have a breakthrough there and a strong record coming into Paris.

Caroline Wozniacki has to play more power game . She has to develope killer shots besides outlasting her opponents’ shots . That’s not enough to win a grand slam. Fitness alone can’t take her there to be a Grand Slam champion . In today’s tennis how quickly you get your points with your unique killer shots and placement to finish off the game is so crucial to the style of play you acquire .
She is still young, fit and a great fighter and I hope she will learn to play a power game with more screws and surprise killer shots rather than tick tack shots and wait to see who can outlast each other.
I hope she would aspire to change her style of play and get there to the ultimate Grand Slam tiltle in this year .
