COPENHAGEN: World number one Caroline Wozniacki has dropped her father Piotr as coach in a dramatic attempt to halt a worrying slump in form just 11 days before the start of the US Open. “I’m no longer her coach. Who will be the new one? I promised I wouldn’t say,” Piotr Wozniacki told the Ekstra Bladet newspaper. The pair agreed to make the change after Wozniacki’s third consecutive fourth-round exit at Wimbledon earlier this year. Since then, she has lost both her openers at the Toronto and Cincinnati events, the traditional tune-ups before the US Open.
