Johannesburg, Mar 13: Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki has said that she is ‘no hurry’ to get a new head coach after her father again joined in a key role in her coaching team.
The former world No.1 and the fiancee of golf ace Rory McIlroy has been without a coach since sacking Swede Thomas Hogstedt in January although she has appointed former player Michael Mortensen to help out in the immediate future.
According to Sport24, Wozniacki asked her father Piotr, who had coached her for much of her career, to stand aside in 2011 although she has now admitted that it is ‘safe and fun’ for her when her father is coaching her.
Wozniacki also said that after trying various coaches, she has now found what works best for her, adding that she believes a coach should click both personally and professionally with a player.
Mortensen will work alongside Wozniacki and her father to prepare the 2009 US Open finalist for future tournaments including the event in Miami, which starts next week, the report added. (ANI)
