The terrible pandemic we are experiencing, as we know, has upset and reshuffled the certainties of the world of sport. Tournaments, exhibitions, championships, training have suffered a setback for several months and consequently this has had a very heavy impact also from an economic point of view.
Many tickets purchased, many expenses that have failed in recent months. However, in these dark times, a ray of sunshine illuminated the smile of women's tennis fans: the exhibition match that should have permanently say goodbye to the professional career of the Slam champion Caroline Wozniacki after her retirement in Australia (she was defeat in the third round against Ons Jabeur) and which had been postponed due to the covid was, as communicated by herself, officially scheduled for 2021.
The Australian Open 2018 champion shot a small video in which she announced the news, while her management agency f Sports Group ApS published the video on Instagram along with a caption in which the feasibility was confirmed.
of the event. "As promised, all ticket buyers will once again have the opportunity to get their tickets refunded when they announce a new date. Of course, we hope that as many people as possible continue to want to pay tribute to two of the biggest sports stars in the world.
world. It is a huge puzzle that must be solved by a higher authority, but we can assure you that we will continue to work with great effort to be able to announce a date in the near future," we can read in the message in the post.
As many will know, Caroline's opponent will be none other than Serena Williams, an extraordinary champion and great friend of the former Danish tennis player. The two tennis players were supposed to face each other on May 18 in Denmark in an event called The Final One, but the strict topicality had forced the organization to forfeit a few months earlier due to the complications caused by the virus.
Serena and Caroline is a relationship that goes beyond tennis
Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki are, as mentioned, very good friends, not surprisingly Serena was one of Wozniacki's bridesmaids during her wedding in 2019.
The two tennis players have faced each other 11 times in their career and the balance is clearly in favor of the American champion, who conceded only one victory to her opponent, always proving to be superior especially in terms of physical strength.
We will see if this last catwalk that will grant the just and deserved tribute to Caroline will confirm the statistics, even if it is unlikely that importance will be given to the final result. It will be a party, a real celebration of a great tennis player in a year that, hopefully, will make the stadiums popular again.
