Danish tennis star Caroline Wozniacki has announced her comeback to the sport after a three-year retirement. With a family now, she believes it’s the perfect moment to return and is eagerly looking forward to getting back on the court. Wozniacki, a former world No. 1, clinched the Australian Open title in 2018.

In a surprising turn of events, former world No. 1 tennis player, Caroline Wozniacki, has sent shockwaves through the tennis world with her recent announcement. After three years of retirement, the 32-year-old Danish athlete is set to make a remarkable comeback to the sport.

In 2020, Wozniacki had bid farewell to professional tennis, expressing her desire to embark on a new journey focused on starting a family and raising awareness about rheumatoid arthritis, a condition she battles with. Her retirement left fans and fellow players alike in admiration of her achievements and contributions to the sport.

Now, breaking the silence about her future plans, Caroline Wozniacki revealed in an exclusive feature with Vogue that she has decided to return to the tennis scene later in 2023. This unexpected decision has garnered immense attention and excitement from the tennis community, who eagerly await her return to the courts.

As the tennis star prepares to stage her much-anticipated comeback, the world anticipates witnessing her extraordinary skills and determination once again. With her resolute spirit and remarkable talent, Caroline Wozniacki’s return promises to be a captivating chapter in the history of tennis.

She said: Three years ago, having achieved almost everything I’d ever set out to do, I walked away from the professional tour. I wanted to start a family, and I needed a break. I had no idea how long that break would last.
“But then, one day late last year, I found myself setting up a couple of sessions on the court. And when my dad visited me in Florida, I realised I needed advice. I hit for 20, 30 minutes – I’m not sure how long, but at one point I looked at him and said, “I feel like I’m hitting it better than I ever have. Am I making that up?
“He said I wasn’t making that up. And that’s when I knew I had to get back out there.”
Wozniacki has set her sights on competing in the US Open, aiming to finally make a Grand Slam appearance after previously reaching the final at Flushing Meadows on two occasions.
However, her comeback aspirations extend beyond a single tournament. The 32-year-old is also determined to participate in the Australian Open and the Olympic Games next year. This resurgence in her career is not a momentary success but a calculated endeavor for Wozniacki.

“So I’m going to play the US Open. There’s just an electric atmosphere in New York that I can’t get enough of, and I’ve played so well there for years and years,” Wozniacki continued.

“I’ll start out playing in Montreal just to get back into the groove, and then we’ll all head to New York. After that, I’ll have a couple of months to prepare for Australia, and we’ll take it from there. The Paris Olympics are definitely a goal too.
“How long will I be able to play at my highest level – a year, two years, three years? I don’t know. But I know that five years from now, when the kids are in school, it will be too late.”
