Piotr Wozniacki, the father and former coach of Carline, says he will travel with his daughter during 2014, even though Thomas Hogstedt is now coaching her.

Piotr Wozniacki had said in the fall that he wanted to spend more time at home, but apparently he will travel to Australia and other locales at the alleged insistence of his daughter and Hogstedt.

“They want me to go to Melbourne,” he told Ekstra Bladet. “They believe it is for the best. Thomas believes it is important that I occasionally help both training and competitions next year. He thinks that it is too significant a breach of Caroline if I suddenly stop completely. I have of course been at her side almost constantly the last 13-16 years, so I’m not just dispensable from one day to the next. Caroline needs my support.”

Piotr Wozniacki added that Hogstedt will be in charge of coaching.
