Caroline Wozniacki to retire after the Australian Open
The former world No. 1 said Friday that her final championship is going to be the Australian Open next month. It’s the website where she won her lone grand slam singles title in 2018, which was contrary to the then-top-ranked Simona Halep.
Known for her defense, Wozniacki reached the US Open final in 2014 and 2009.
“I’ve played since I was 15 years old,” that the 29-year-old Dane wrote in an Instagram article. “During this time I’ve undergone an awesome first chapter of my life.
“With 30 WTA singles games, a world #1 ranking for 71 months, a WTA Finals success, 3 Olympics, including taking the flag for my native Denmark, and winning the 2018 Australian Open Grand slam championship, I’ve accomplished everything that I could ever dream of on the courtroom .”
She had been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 2018, however, the decision to call it a profession”has nothing to do with my health,” Wozniacki said.
“I feel healthy. I feel good. Maybe I’ll run another marathon. Who knows?” Wozniacki said on ABC’s”Good Morning America.” The New York City Marathon was run by her .
Wozniacki, who married former NBA player David Lee this season, stated in her Instagram article,”I have always told myself, when the moment comes, that there are items from tennis that I want to do longer, then it is time to be carried out.
“In recent months, I’ve realized there is a lot more in life that I’d love to reach off the court. Getting married to David was among these aims and beginning a family with him while continuing to traveling the planet and helping raise consciousness about rheumatoid arthritis (project upcoming) are passions of mine going ahead.”
Wozniacki is ranked 37th in the whole world.
