Big shock: Wozniacki stops his career

Caroline Wozniacki stops the career.

It informs her on his Instagram.

On her Instagram profile, she writes the following about karrierestoppet:

"I've played professionally since I was 15 years old. In that time I have experienced a fantastic first chapter of my life. With 30 WTA-singles, reaching number one in the world ranking of 71 weeks, a win in the WTA finals, 3 OLYMPIC participations, where I even bar the Danish flag, and a victory at the Australian Open in 2018. I have achieved everything on the field, I could dream of."

"I have always said to myself that when the time comes, where there are things outside of the tennis court, I would rather low, so it is time to say stop," said Wozniacki, before she continues:

"In recent months I have come to realize that there is much more outside of the track, which I would like to achieve. To be married with David was one of the goals, and to start a family with him - while I still travel around the world and puts a focus on rheumatoid arthritis (a project that is on the way) - are passions which I will concern myself with in the future."

"So, with this announce I today that I let me retire as a professional tennis player after the Australian Open in January. It has nothing to do with my health, and it is not a goodbye. I look forward to sharing my exciting journey in the future with all of you! Lastly I want to say thank you with all my heart to fans, friends, sponsors, my team and especially my dad as a coach, my husband and my family for decades of support. Without you I never could have done it here!," ends Caroline Wozniacki.

the 29-year-old Caroline Wozniacki is married to the former basketball player David Lee.

Thus it stops the Danish tennis darling career to end in Australia, where she won her biggest title, as a professional tennis player when she won the Australia Open in 2018.

It is the only Grand Slam title, Wozniacki has won.

Tennisstjernen announced its stop in the tv-show Good Morning America.
