Caroline Wozniacki recently trained with her younger compatriot Holger Rune ahead of her competitive return at the 2023 Canadian Open.
2018 Australian Open champion Wozniacki initially retired from competitive tennis at the tournament Down Under in 2020.
Three years and two babies later, she has announced that she will be coming out of retirement ahead of the 2023 US Open. Caroline Wozniacki revealed the news in June, in an article for Vogue.
The former World No. 1 stated that one of her aims was to prove to herself and to other mothers that having a career after giving birth is possible.
“I’ve talked with a lot of women who gave up on their own dreams because they wanted to be with their families, but somewhere deep down they have this yearning to do something they’re passionate about,” the former World No. 1 said in her essay for Vogue.”I want to prove that to myself and to those women. You can have both: You can be thrilled with your family and with everything at home and still have a career—and be great at it,” she added.
Caroline Wozniacki has since commenced her training sessions. The Dane, who otherwise lives in Florida, was recently spotted training with compatriot and World No. 6 Holger Rune at the Monte-Carlo Country Club.
The 20-year-old’s sister Alma uploaded a video of their practice on social media.
Wozniacki also recently reunited with her former hitting partner Michal Przysiezny ahead of her return.
The two-time US Open finalist stated that she aims to commence her journey as a wildcard entrant at the Canadian Open (August 7-13), where she was the champion in 2010. She will then contest the final Major of the season at Flushing Meadows.
