Caroline Wozniacki reacts to Serena Williams' and many more messages

Caroline Wozniacki reacted to John Isner, Serena Willams and many more reacting to the announcement about her retirement from the professional tour. The Dane said: "My career speaks for itself, I think. I think many will remember to be for having fought and worked really hard.

And then I hope that my opponents and colleagues will remember me as a thoughtful and helpful person, who was kind and nice. I hope people will remember the feelings they had when they've been together with me. And I think a lot of people have liked me as a person.

There have been many touching reactions, but when you're still in it, it can be a lot to take in. It's hard to believe how many people I've touched, and how many who've stayed up to watch my matches. That it's meant so much to so many people."

For the seventh year in a row and eight overall, the Czech Petra Kvitova got the Karen Krantzcke Sportsmanship Award for her on court and off court fair play. The two-time Wimbledon winner, through a statement, said: "Receiving this award for the eighth time makes me very proud and means so much to me.

Being recognized by my colleagues for sportsmanship and fair play is an honor as I always pride myself on treating my opponents with respect. I hope to inspire future generations to love the sport of tennis as much as I do."
