Wozniacki drops coach

12:20 pm on 3 February 2012

The former women's tennis world number one Caroline Wozniacki has parted company with her Spanish coach Ricardo Sanchez after only two months of collaboration.

The decision, announced by Wozniacki's father and confirmed by Sanchez, comes after her elimination in the quarter-finals at the Australian Open, which resulted in her falling to fourth place in the WTA ranking.

In December, Sanchez broke off his partnership with Serbian former world number one Jelena Jankovic to work with Wozniacki, who had dropped her father Piotr as her coach in August.
