automatic resize of one graph using subplot function

I have a m-file which is producing one plot graph and one polar graph.
In this file I attribute the plot graph to subplot(1,2,1) and the polar graph to subplot(1,2,2).
The problem is that while I do this my polar graph undergo an unexpected resize of the radius axis (in polar coordinates), increasing of about 30%, thus providing me with a non optimal graph.
I tried to use the axis command with the various arguments (image, ...), but it doesn't help.
anyone can help?

x=0:0.1:10;
s1=subplot(121)
plot(x,sin(x))
s2=subplot(122)
plot(x,tan(x))
xlim(s1,[0 100]) %define your own x limits for subplot 1
ylim(s1,[-10 10]) %define your own y limits for subplot 1
%or you can use
axis(s1,[0 100 -1 1]) %same thing as xlim and ylim
get(s1) %this will show you some properties of suplot 1 that you can change
%for example change the tag
set(s1,'tag','mytag')

Or you can just set the x- and (or) y-limits to be manual after you create your individual plots. (The default is 'automatic'.):
xlim('manual');
ylim('manual');
