Caroline She decision to stop his career has been a long time coming, says tennisstjernens father.
There was not a sudden decision, as Caroline Wozniacki on Friday announced that she will stop his career as a professional tennis player after the Australian Open in January.
It says the Danish tennisstjernes father, Piotr Wozniacki to Ekstra Bladet.
- We have talked about it in some months, and the decision is matured over a half a year, says Piotr Wozniacki to the newspaper.
Caroline Wozniacki said on Friday that her problems with rheumatoid arthritis are not the reason that she chooses to put tennisketsjeren on the shelf. But according to her father it has played a role.
In the period where she had her illness, we have continuously talked about whether or not she will continue to be able to make the results.
- Who has all the time been the uncertainty. You know never in the morning. There is constantly the question, and Caroline has not had it good with the fact that she never really has been able to plan further ahead in time, in relation to the things she would like, says Piotr Wozniacki to Ekstra Bladet.
Caroline She afskedsturnering, the Australian Open, played from 20. January to 2. February 2020.
The Danish tennis champion became a professional in 2005, and she ends his career as a 29-year-old as Denmark's most successful tennis player throughout the years.
She has won 30 international tournaments including the Australian Open in 2018 and sæsonfinalen in 2017.
She has served 35,2 million dollar (237,2 million) in prize money, and thus, she is number four on the list of most grossing female tennis players.
Through his career, was Wozniacki the number one in the world in total of 71 weeks. On the account, she is only surpassed by eight players.
