It did not take long for former number-one tennis star Caroline Wozniacki to fire her tennis coach of two months, Ricardo Sanchez of Spain.

Wozniacki’s father, Piotr told a media publication that Sanchez simply did not inspire his daughter with any new drive or new impulses during his short tenure.

Sanchez was hired in early December, but she was defeated by defending champion Kim Clijsters in the quarterfinals of the recently completed Australian Open and thus losing her #1 ranking and is now ranked fourth.

She has never won a Grand Slam event.

Wozniacki’s dad will go back to his role of coaching his daughter, which was his role before Sanchez was hired.

The 21-year-old Danish star has a singles record of 298-107 with 18 WTA titles and has won over $11.7 million in prize money.
