Wozniacki: from zero tennis traditions to 'lots of great Danish kids', a quirky quest

Former World No.1 Caroline Wozniacki has had an exceptional career, and the Grand Slam champion is looking forward to the rise of other stars from her native country of Denmark.

Wozniacki lifted 30 career singles WTA titles, including her sole Grand Slam at the 2018 Australian Open. The Danish has also amassed career prize money above $35 million and ranks in the Top 10 of the highest earners of all time in WTA history.

The future of Danish tennis is in good hands, says Wozniacki

After making a return from a three and a half year retirement at the 2023 US Open, the 33-year old has stated she still has goals she would like to achieve. However, when asked about Danish prospects on tour, Wozniacki singled out compatriots Holger Rune on the ATP and WTA colleague Clara Tauson.

"Coming from a small country that had zero tennis traditions in the past and being able to achieve what I did and now seeing other young players come through from my country is pretty special," said the Danish star. "I hope it starts another tennis tradition from Denmark and we’re gonna see a lot more kids moving forward that are gonna play great tennis from Denmark.

"That’s something I want to teach young kids and also my kids. That if they want to achieve something, the size of their dream is the size of how much they can accomplish. If you work hard and love what you do, anything is possible."
