Caroline Wozniacki reacts in Miami


(April 13, 2012) Danish press announced today that Sven Groeneveld will spend more time coaching Caroline Wozniacki as she heads into the clay court season.

According to an
interview with Danish news site Ekstra Bladet, Groeneveld was asked by Wozniacki's father, Piotr Wozniacki, back at Indian Wells to spend more time working with his daughter who is looking to regain some form after losing her No. 1 ranking back in January. Per a translated version of the article, Groeneveld said he thought the focus should be on improving the Dane's overall game to win a Grand Slam title and that the loss of her top ranking wasn't a disaster.

"As a coach, I look after the progress," said Groeneveld. "Caroline is 21 and may reach 70 percent of the road as a player. There is plenty of room for improvement, and as a coach, I see it purely objectively. The player sees it maybe different."

Groeneveld, who later confirmed he will remain as part of the Adidas training team, spoke about the areas he hopes to improve in Wozniacki's game.

"I would like to see her take a little more into the opponent's service and follow up on the short ball she gets back after a good first serve. The more she does it and become aware of it, the more she will feel comfortable with it. It is an ongoing process."

Wozniacki will play
Alize Cornet later today in the quarterfinals of the e-Boks Open.
