Women's tennis is ready to welcome the great Danish star again: Caroline Wozniacki made the surprising decision to return to the WTA circuit after about 3 and a half years. The champion's announcement came in the last couple of days through her social media profiles: "In the last three years I have stayed away from tennis, I have become a mother, I have two children of whom I am very proud.
But I still have goals to achieve. I want to show my kids that you can chase your dreams regardless of age or role. We've decided as a family that it's time to try again. I'm coming back, I can't wait." This what the 32-year-old athlete wrote, also the protagonist of the new Vogue magazine.
Two wild cards already assigned
Fans are waiting to see the player at work again, winner of the Australian Open in 2018 and already number one in the world for 71 weeks in the WTA ranking. Wozniacki's last match was even in 2020 on the occasion of the Melbourne Grand Slam (she defeated the Tunisian Ons Jabeur).
Caroline has two big appointments on her personal schedule. In fact, she is already certain to participate in the WTA 1000 in Montreal, which announced the assignment of the wild card after the news announced on social media.
The same with regard to the US Open: the Danish, therefore, will be part of the main draw of the last Slam of the season, with the aim of obtaining some great satisfactions and perhaps following in the footsteps of Elina Svitolina (mother recently back on the court).
