Caroline Wozniacki on what's coming next
09.16.2020 - By TENNIS.com Podcast
"I love my tennis identity. It's given me so much in life and it's part of who I am. I've worked so hard for everything I've done on court and I think I enjoy having that part of me."
The TENNIS.com Podcast catches up with Caroline Wozniacki this week to talk about her retirement, the launch of Advantage Hers, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, her friendship with Serena Williams, her relationship with her dad, and a lot more.
Wozniacki picked up 30 titles during a successful career that spanned 15 years. Turning pro at 15 in 2005, Wozniacki would skyrocket all the way to No. 1 by 2010 and finish as the year-end No. 1 two years in a row. An incredibly consistent performer, the Dane won at least one title every year from 2008 until 2018. She picked up her then-biggest title at the 2017 WTA Finals and followed that with her first Grand Slam title at the 2018 Australian Open.
By that year's end, she revealed a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. She'd continue her career for another season before announcing her retirement and playing her final match in the third round of the 2020 Australian Open.
Since leaving the tour, Wozniacki has jumped into a new post-tennis life that has involved filming a TV show that follows her up Mount Kilimanjaro, quarantining with her husband David Lee (a former NBA champion), working out a lot and preparing for commentary.
She just launched Advantage Hers, an awareness and empowerment campaign for women living with chronic inflammatory diseases. As expected, Wozniacki has taken her signature positive attitude from the court into tackling inflammatory diseases.
