Danish-born professional athlete Caroline Wozniacki is known around the world for her exploits on the tennis court. She made her first appearance on the world stage after winning 2nd place against Kim Clijsters at the 2009 US Open, and in 2010 she became the first woman of Scandinavian descent to top the tennis world rankings, leading the tennis charts. In 2011 she was also at the top of the ranking list after winning a total of 6 WTA singles titles in the same year. The talented tennis player finished the US Open 2014 as runner-up ahead of Serena Williams. In 2017 Wozniacki won the WTA finals in Singapore for the first time in her career. On January 29, 2018, Wozniacki shot herself back to the top of the rankings after winning the Australian Open 2018, her very first Grand Slam title.
Caroline Wozniacki’s Bio, Age
Caroline Wozniacki was born on 11 July 1990 in Odense (Denmark). Her parents – Piotr Wozniacki and Anna Wozniacka – were Polish immigrants and both were also professional athletes. Her father Piotr was also a professional footballer. Her mother Anna was a volleyball player and a former member of the Polish women’s national volleyball team. The family moved to Denmark when Piotr signed and got the opportunity to play for the Danish football club Boldklubben. Caroline grew up at the side of a sibling, an older brother, Patrik Wozniacki, who is also a football player in his native Denmark.
Caroline Wozniacki started playing tennis at the age of 7 with her father Piotr Wozniacki as a coach. She started her professional career in 2005, and just one year later, while juggling her junior career with school, the then 16-year-old Wozniacki won the Wimbledon Girls’ singles title in 2006. She also made it to the final of the junior girls’ singles at 2006 Australian Open and the final of the junior girls’ doubles at Roland Garros.
2007 was Wozniacki’s first full season and she managed to move up into the top 100 as she finished the year in 64th place in the WTA ranking. In 2008 she won her first three WTA Tour titles and also reached the fourth round of the Australian and U.S. Open. She finished the season in 12th place, making her the first Danish player to reach the top 30 in the tennis world rankings. In 2009, she won three more titles, reached the fourth round of Wimbledon, and was also runner-up at the US Open, which took her up to fourth place in the world rankings at the end of the year.
In 2010, Caroline Wozniacki added another level to her winning streak by winning 6 seasonal titles, the highest number of titles in one year by a WTA player between 2008-2011. As expected, Wozniacki shot herself to the top of the WTA rankings and remained in the top spot for 67 consecutive weeks. Also in 2011 she won 6 WTA titles and finished the year in the first place of the WTA ranking for the second time in a row.
Between 2012 and 2015 Wozniacki had a relatively quiet career. She won two titles in 2012 (Korea Open and the Kremlin Cup), another in 2013 (BGL Luxembourg Open), another in 2014 (Istanbul Cup), and another in 2015 (Malaysian Open). Although she was plagued by several injuries in 2016, she won two titles (the Hong Kong Open and the Pan Pacific Open). In 2017 Wozniacki could only win 2 titles despite reaching the final round of 6 championships. She defeated Shelby Rogers to successfully defend her title at the Pan Pacific Open 2017 and also defeated Venus Williams to secure the crown of the 2017 WTA Finals.
After so much success in her illustrious career, one thing was missing from Caroline Wozniacki’s trophy cabinet: a Grand Slam. But in January 2018, the former world No. 1 broke the curse when she beat Simona Halep in the 2018 Australian Open final to win her very first major title.
Boyfriend, Engagement With David Lee
It’s one thing to achieve immense success in your career, but getting it right in personal relationships is another game. Caroline Wozniacki is one of the chosen few who are doing well both in her career and in relationships. On Valentine’s Day 2017, a love truck Wozniacki announced through social media that she is in a relationship with retired NBA star David Lee. As a professional basketball player, Lee had a successful career in the NBA. He spent 5 years with the New York Knicks before joining the Golden State Warriors in 2010 where he won the NBA Championship in 2015.
On November 2, 2017, Caroline Wozniacki announced her engagement to Lee. According to reports, he allegedly asked the question with an 8.8-carat diamond ring while they were on vacation in Bora Bora. Barely two months after their engagement, Wozniacki scored her very first Grand Slam at the 2018 Australian Open, and in fact, David Lee was with her throughout the tournament, as he accompanied her in her training sessions and also stood in the stands during her matches. Could it be that romance is an important catalyst for the success of her career?
Even though the former number 1 in the world, Caroline Wozniacki, may be standing at the altar with her fiancé David Lee right now, we must not rush to forget her rather interesting relationship timeline. Between 2011 and 2014 the talented tennis champion had a relationship with the Northern Irish golfer Rory McIlroy. Their relationship lasted 3 years and they even got engaged. However, on 21 May 2014, a few months after their engagement, McIlroy broke off the engagement with Wozniacki by telephone.
