Previews: Federer in Davis Cup, WTA Events; Tennis-X Notes

WOZ’S DAD CANS HER COACH — Caroline Wozniacki dropped from No. 1 to No. 4 when the new WTA Rankings came out after the Australian Open where she lost in the quarterfinals. Wozniacki then canned her coach of only two months, Spain’s Ricardo Sanchez. Wozniacki’s father, Piotr, announced the split saying it wasn’t a good fit, while Sanchez said he couldn’t coach the former No. 1 because dad was always up in his business. “I have great respect for Piotr, who has never played tennis himself, and for the work he has done,” Sanchez told Ekstra Bladet. “But he has his way of doing things, and I have mine.” He said “Caroline was just confused” by having two coaches “who wanted different things.” Wozniacki said, “I also felt that he could not make a big difference for me personally as a player. Therefore we decided to terminate the relationship.”
