According to Ricardo Sanchez, former coach of world number one-ranked Caroline Wozniacki's, she must be 'more aggressive.'

“Caroline can recover her number one ranking, but she must be more aggressive,” Ricardo Sanchez told Spanish sports daily Marca. “I tried (to help her) but they wouldn’t let me. Wozniacki should be a race horse, not a pack horse.”

Sanchez was let go just two months after becoming her new coach, after her 3-6, 6-7 loss to Kim Clijsters in the quarterfinals of the 2012 Australian Open. Wozniacki remains without a Grand Slam title and dropped in the rankings to fourth in the world. Sanchez has coached former number one Jelena Jankovic and says he felt "deceived" by Wozniacki's father, Piotr, who has now returned to being her sole coach.

“I was told that I would be free to coach her as I wished, and then I was given very little margin to do so,” Sanchez said. “In just five weeks, I went from being a coach to being just a consultant."

Piotr now hopes he can turn Wozniacki into a Grand Slam winner once again on his own.
