Dazzling Danish, 29-year-old former World No. 1, Caroline Wozniacki has again delayed her retirement after raging a coup de grâce to knock out the 23rd Seed Ukrainian teen Dayana Yastremska 7-5, 7-5, paving her way in to the third round of the 2020 Australian Open where she would meet the Tunisian dark-horse Ons Jabeur on Friday (January 24th).
On top of that, as the 29-year-old with 30 WTA singles titles including six back in the 2010s, announced her retirement after ’20 AO on December 6th, 2019, each match she had been playing in the Australian Open could be the last of her career, following her straight-set win against the 23rd seed, voicing a touchy tone, an emotional Wozniacki said in an on-court interview on Wednesday (January 22nd), “I was really nervous going into my first round.
Today I actually felt pretty calm, but it quickly became 5-1, and I was thinking, 'Hopefully I can be out here for another 30 minutes to try and take it all in!' After winning this match, which was a really tough one, it's just so special to play in front of such an amazing crowd on one of my favourite courts. ”
