L’ancienne numéro 1 mondiale Caroline Wozniacki vient d’annoncer qu’elle mettrait un terme à sa carrière après l’Open d’Australie en janvier.

Caroline Wozniacki a annoncé ce vendredi qu’elle mettrait un terme à sa carrière après l’Open d’Australie, qui se déroulera du 20 janvier au 2 février. À 29 ans, la Danoise aura remporté son seul Grand Chelem en Australie en 2018, l’année où elle aura également atteint le rang de numéro une mondiale. « J’ai accompli tout ce dont je rêvais sur le court, écrit-elle. (…) Ces derniers mois, j’ai réalisé qu’il y avait beaucoup de choses que j’aimerais réaliser hors du court », a-t-elle ajouté sur son compte Instagram.

I’ve played professionally since I was 15 years old. In that time I’ve experienced an amazing first chapter of my life. With 30 WTA singles titles, a world #1 ranking for 71 weeks, a WTA Finals victory, 3 Olympics, including carrying the flag for my native Denmark, and winning the 2018 Australian Open Grand slam championship, I’ve accomplished everything I could ever dream of on the court. I’ve always told myself, when the time comes, that there are things away from tennis that I want to do more, then it’s time to be done. In recent months, I’ve realized that there is a lot more in life that I’d like to accomplish off the court. Getting married to David was one of those goals and starting a family with him while continuing to travel the world and helping raise awareness about rheumatoid arthritis (project upcoming) are all passions of mine moving forward. So with that, today I am announcing that I will be retiring from professional tennis after the Australian Open in January. This has nothing to do with my health and this isn’t a goodbye, I look forward to sharing my exciting journey ahead with all of you! Finally, I want to thank with all my heart, the fans, my friends, my sponsors, my team, especially my father as my coach, my husband, and my family for decades of support! Without all of you I could have never have done this!
