Second Serve


Former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki has added three-time French Open champion Arantxa Sanchez Vicario to her team for the clay season.

Wozniacki has already been working with the Spaniard for approximately two weeks.

“We will keep working together until the French Open,” Wozniacki’s father and lead coach, Piotr, said on Danish TV. “We will then decide, based on what happens, whether to keep going or not.”

Sanchez Vicario, who was the youngest woman to ever win the French Open title before Monica Seles took that distinction, was known for her tenacity, particularly on clay. She won 29 WTA titles. She became a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 2007.

Wozniacki has not been past the third round at Roland Garros since 2010 when she reached the quarterfinals. Last year she fell in the opening round to Yanina Wickmayer.

"The last couple of clay seasons haven't gone very well for me," Wozniacki said in an interview, which was translated by Mark Nixon. "First of all because maybe I haven't played tactically smart and secondly because I've had some small injuries here and there. But I felt it was time to try something new, and Arantxa has played really well on clay, and she knows what I need to do. She can help me tactically, so I think we're a good fit."
