Caroline Wozniacki decides to drop her father as coach after losing in the first round in Cincinnati.

Caroline Wozniacki has decided to remove her father Piotr as her coach.

The world number one has endured a tough run of form, losing in the opening rounds in both Toronto and Cincinnati in recent weeks.

The 21-year-old has decided to make a change of coach as she bids to rediscover form ahead of the US Open later this month.

"I am no longer her coach. Who will be the new one? I promised I wouldn't say," Piotr Wozniacki told the Ekstra Bladet newspaper.

"From morning to night, we have heard how Caroline should play. Now we are trying something else. I am Caroline's father and I will always support her."

Wozniacki lost in the fourth round of Wimbledon for a third successive year in June and has yet to win a Grand Slam tournament.
