Caroline Wozniacki: 'After I am done playing, I will try triathlon'

Caroline Wozniacki is a very fit athlete. In 2014, she completed the New York Marathon in less than four hours and on Sunday in Doha she was asked what sport she would like to take up after her tennis career. She replied: 'I don't know if I would be good at it, but I think I will try to do a triathlon eventually after I’m done playing.

Mostly to keep in shape so I can still eat whatever I want. That's the main motivation. After doing a marathon, I did a pretty decent time. So I think triathlon would be fun to do.' Wozniacki is also keeping track of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

'I used to ski all the time. We used to ski at least a month [every] year,' Wozniacki revealed. 'I'm a pretty decent skier and snowboarder. But no way could I be an Olympic skier because I'm a little bit too nervous when it goes too quickly.

When I was a kid I wasn't afraid of anything. I would do jumps and all sorts. But now I'm more conservative. If anything, if there was a sport [I would try], it would probably be curling because Denmark - one of the only Olympic medals we've ever won is curling.

And I feel, with a good team around me and a little bit of good hand-eye co-ordination I could do probably maybe do that. I was trying to see what sports were on and I saw some ski jumping because there was a couple of Polish people in there.

And then I watched luge, but it wasn't really that interesting to me because I didn't understand it. Then I watched curling. But I'm waiting for the downhill. Lindsey Vonn is one of my good friends, so I'm excited to watch her and support her.' ALSO READ: Roger Federer trains in Rotterdam, to play Bemelmans in first round
