Caroline Wozniacki: 'Facing the GOAT Serena Williams will be a pleasure'

On May 18 Caroline Wozniacki will face Serena Williams at the Royal Arena in her country, Denmark, as announced by the Sports Group. "It came the moment when I ended my career and I am looking forward to play my last match at home in front of such a big crowd.

It will be something really special", said Wozniacki. "The end of my career cannot happen anywhere but at home and against the greatest player ever and my friend Serena Williams. It will be an evening I will never forget, I am sure."

They already faced each other in Denmark in Herning back in 2015. On the WTA Tour they met 11 times and their last meeting happened at the 2014 WTA Finals. The American won ten matches, while the Dane triumphed in 2012 Miami.

Bianca Andreescu spoke about how she deals with challenges: "I have to make sure that they’re coming into my life for my own good, not only theirs. That’s definitely been a challenge. But I’m not complaining.

I love doing what I’m doing, so I’m super-happy about everything going on right now”. On players possibly being influenced by the social media, the coach Franco Davin said: "Yeah, it's possible.

When you always check your phone, it's not easy to go out and practice. Before, when I was a kid, the punishment was not to leave your home. Now the punishment is to leave your home. Times changed... Even my two sons use social media but for me the issue is with public people.

They have a lot of popularity, many distractions, they want to see what they say of them, the reactions to their matches..."
