Piotr Wozniacki tells Sporten-Oevrig that he and his slumping daughter Caroline are in search of a new full-time coach for next year. Piotr has coached his daughter for her entire career and at times has brought in other coaches to help, but none have worked out. He is said to be eyeing coaches who are already under contract with other players.

“We have a couple of advisors who help us [now], but they also have other responsibilities,” he said. “This will change soon. The aim is that one of the will be Caroline’s full time coach, and it’s just a question of whom we trust the most. What happened last year [with coaches Ricardo Sanchez and Thomas Johansson] didn’t change anything with the fact that we wanted a fundamental change. I need to get away from this circus, so I can stay home, watch the matches on TV, and only go to a few tournaments, while another coach directs the work with Caroline. We’ve found the pieces, now we just have to make them fit. The new coach will have full responsibility, that’s been the aim the whole time…We want someone who can be with her the rest of her career and not just for a half year, because that’s no good and wrecks things. Caroline’s old enough to make her own decisions, even if it’s not easy, because she has to find someone who understands her game and personality.”
