Former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki had parted with yet another coach, as it was revealed that recently hired Michael Mortensen would no longer be working with her throughout the season.

“I can’t do much more right now,” Mortensen told Danish newspaper Esktra Bladet. “It’s better if the two of them continue working alone. Caroline doesn’t feel that the time is right to work on the things I’d like to change in her game. She wants to work on the things she emphasizes and that’s totally fine. There’s a lot of pressure on her and a lot of points she has to defend, and she wants to become familiar with her own game again.”

The Danish star, who will fall out of the Top 15 in the WTA rankings for the first time since 2008, crashed out of the BNP Paribas Open this week when she lost to Jelena Jankovic in straight sets. She recently parted with her former coach Thomas Hogstedt, who also only lasted a short period of time, and is now at another crossroads in her career.
