In an interview to BT the former world No. 1 Lindsay Davenport commented on Caroline Wozniacki's US Open campaign. The Dane lost to the eventual winner Bianca Andreescu in the first round. Wozniacki has been dealing with an illness for more than a year and she has withdrawn from multiple events.
"I was very hit by Andreescu. She is an enormous talent who will definitely have a great future. As for Wozniacki, let's say she was overestimated. I think she may end her career at the end of the year because she is dealing with rheumatoid arthritis and she did not have the best season.
So it may have been the last time we see her playing at the US Open", said Davenport. "I really hope Caroline continues her career", said former agent John Tobias. "She has been playing at a high level for 10 or 15 years.
I think she can stay around for a few more years." Wozniacki said she thinks she will keep playing next year too. Her father and coach Caroline said: "After this season, it was agreed that Caroline will speak with the team to reassess her season overall.
So for me, it's impossible to say if she will be at the Australian Open, for example." Her brother Patrik concluded: "She may not be at the Australian Open. I have no idea if she is getting closer to retirement. She is just training hard and she seems willing to continue."
