You would think that if you got the job of coaching the worlds number one player then youd like the world to know about it. Looks great on the CV. But Caroline Wozniacki is to be coached from afar by someone - rumored to be a top ex-player on the ATP Tour - because that is what he wants.
"It is entirely his own choice," Wozniacki said. "It was a joint decision that my dad and I took, although it was probably a little more from my father's side. But I agree with it. He's still my dad and a really good friend. In this way, it has not changed. I just get some input from the other side, too."
The idea, according to a report in Denmarks Ekstra Bladet, is that the mysterious new coach will act as a technical advisor and work through video tapes, although he might also more conventionally work with her in person now and then. Meanwhile, Carolines father will continue to work with his daughter as he has in the past - just with help from a figure in the shadows.
"I will be the daily coach who tries to implement his ideas on the practice court and in Caroline's matches," Piotr said. "And I must also say that I believe in his ideas and fully agree with his observation. He also believes that we must go out from Caroline's current base. She should just get better at some things, but it must be built on in a calm and sensible pace
