Caroline Wozniacki's father has never been a tennis player, and yet...

Now that her 14-year-long career has ended, Caroline Wozniacki will take on new projects to fill her life with goals and motivation. Would there be some space in this list of new experiences for a book? Tennis fans enjoy reading about their idols’ life and background story, even though the literary stage has been occupied mostly by over-popular male players until now: Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Andre Agassi, just to mention a few.
If the 2018 Australian Open champion were to ever write her memoirs or autobiography, something interesting about her relationship with her father could easily catch readers’ attention. “Her father did most of her planning,” a member of Wozniacki’s team when she snatched her Grand Slam title, told Tennis World USA.
“He was always arranging everyone and everything to work with her. He was kind of doing her managing and coaching. And he was never a tennis player, he was a soccer player. But she always listens to him. So this is very unique, that he was never a player but he has this great influence and way to have her listening to him”.
To think that a man who hasn’t been a player himself could manage a World No. 1’s career is surprising. The Dane never misses an occasion to recognize her father's work and support.
