Well I'm not in the inner circle but both from what I've seen when she's been at Eastbourne and from what I think she's said - I think Piotr is the main actual coach who has the main say.

Caroline Wozniacki

Chris Evert, Steffi Graf, Kim Clijsters

I guess, but if Groenefeld is the main guy he would be the one advising her on tactics during those on court coaching things.

Well I think the on-court speeches are more motivational than technical and thus would fall into Piotrs department. Plus, he could be getting his cues from Groenefeld regarding what to tell her about technical stuff.

No, that was greatly exaggerated by the media. She was supposed to be an advisor with regards to the slams, not become her main coach. And the whole thing fell apart over her monetary requests I believe...

Sven can't be more than an adviser or temporary development coach..? Piotr has to carry on Sven's work when he isn't their or withdraws support due to conflict of interest with two Adidas players. In many ways Piotr's role is a good one imho, because he is always there for her, and he fuses the various consultant coaches efforts into one package. I do think an independent mental coach is a good idea, because while family is always a moral boost (in a normal family) to have around their are boundaries that shouldn't be crossed in this area for the sake of avoiding conflict.

Hopefully Mortensen is available soon, Caro seemed more cheerful when he was around, but that might be a conscience?

I imagine at some point Piotr will want to kick back and have a normal married life again and work on the academy?

Caro is fast becoming her own Women so maybe she will choose a different setup at some point?

Re: Piotr Wozniacki Cheering Thread

Does anyone know if there is any way to contact Piotr to offer support and thank him for the work that he did to help Caroline achieve what she has so far in her career? Maybe it is a silly idea but he must be a bit hurt and if doing so would take away even a tiny bit of the sting he must be feeling then it would be worth doing.

A facebook group is a possibility.

My favorites: Caroline Wozniacki, (Patty Schnyder), Samantha Stosur, Julia Görges, Natalie Schiller. Your favorites may differ.
