At 29 years of age, Caroline Wozniacki stuns the tennis community after announcing her retirement. The Danish sensation has been a constant presence at the top for the last 10 years. Unfortunately, she has been struggling with rheumatoid arthritis, but she managed to compete even with this condition. Eventually, after winning 30 titles and 1 slam (the Australian Open in 2018), she decided that it’s time to call it a career.

Caroline’s husband and family

Probably Caroline is also eager to have a family. She got married to American former professional basketball player David Lee that is following her all over the world. Caroline will retire after the Australian Open 2 years after conquering the title in Melbourne.

This was Caroline’s message on social media:

“I’ve played professionally since I was 15 years old. In that time I’ve experienced an amazing first chapter of my life. With 30 WTA singles titles, a world #1 ranking for 71 weeks, a WTA Finals victory, 3 Olympics, including carrying the flag for my native Denmark, and winning the 2018 Australian Open Grand slam championship, I’ve accomplished everything I could ever dream of on the court.

I’ve always told myself, when the time comes, that there are things away from tennis that I want to do more, then it’s time to be done. In recent months, I’ve realized that there is a lot more in life that I’d like to accomplish off the court. Getting married to David was one of those goals and starting a family with him while continuing to travel the world and helping raise awareness about rheumatoid arthritis (project upcoming) are all passions of mine moving forward.

So with that, today I am announcing that I will be retiring from professional tennis after the Australian Open in January. This has nothing to do with my health and this isn’t a goodbye, I look forward to sharing my exciting journey ahead with all of you!

Finally, I want to thank with all my heart, the fans, my friends, my sponsors, my team, especially my father as my coach, my husband, and my family for decades of support! Without all of you I could have never have done this!”

That was quite a career and all the best for what comes next!
