Piotr Wozniacki lashes out at his and daughter Caroline’s critics for saying she should consider hiring a new coach. Piotr is Caroline’s primary coach, but she also uses the services of adidas’ Sven Groenfeld. Piotr was not at the tournament in Bastad, Sweden, where Caroline retired in the second round with an injury.

"I hope that all the Danish experts are pleased that the father is no longer with her daughter, says Piotr told Ekstra Bladet. "There has been a lot of focus on me, so I hope the experts are satisfied that I was not in Bastad.”??

Caroline wrote on her blog that she might be considering doing some things differently. The No. 1 suffered early defeats both at Roland Garros and at Wimbledon.

"I know there are many who criticize me and who want, among other things, that I need to change coaches. It is a period when I walk around and think about what will happen in the future. The period I have to go through now is not easy. That is why I will take my precautions about how I must make myself ready for the challenges ahead…I am sorry to have disappointed my fans with a defeat, but I will get strong again and will do anything to get even better."
