Caroline Wozniacki to retire from tennis after Australian Open
Former world No 1 Caroline Wozniacki will retire after the Australian Open in January from tennis.
Wozniacki, who won the tournament at 2018, says retirement has nothing to do with her wellness and declared the information on Friday on Instagram.
The 29-year-old needs to begin a family with spouse and past NBA star David Lee, while travelling the world and raising awareness concerning rheumatoid arthritis.
30 WTA singles titles were gained by her and held the No 1 spot in the ranks for a total of 71 months.
Within her Instagram article, Wozniacki said:”I have played since I was 15 years of age. In that time I’ve experienced an incredible chapter of my life.
“With 30 WTA singles games, an entire world No 1 ranking for 71 weeks, a WTA Finals success, 3 Olympics, such as taking the flag for my native Denmark, and winning the 2018 Australian Open Grand slam championship, I’ve achieved everything I could ever dream about the courtroom.
“I’ve always told myself, once the time comes, that there are things away from tennis which I need to do longer, then it’s time to be accomplished. In recent months, I’ve realised there is a lot more in life which I’d love to accomplish the court off.
“Getting married to David was among those aims and starting a family with him while continuing to traveling the entire planet and helping increase awareness concerning rheumatoid arthritis (project forthcoming ) are all passions of mine moving ahead.
“So with that, today I’m announcing that I will be retiring from professional tennis after the Australian Open in January. This has nothing to do with my health and that isn’t a goodbye, I always look forward to discussing my trip with you.
“Ultimately, I wish to thank with all my heart, the fans, my buddies, my sponsors, my group, particularly my father as my mentor, my husband, and my family for decades of support. Without you all I could have not have done this”
