Caroline Wozniacki had a grand wedding with her husband David Lee in 2019
Danish star Caroline Wozniacki recently retired from tennis but the 29-year-old had a lavish wedding with one of the top basketball stars.
Wozniacki has just one Grand Slam under her belt, which was the Australian Open in 2018. She reached the final of the US Open twice but was unable to pick up another major crown.
The Dane had also been World No.1 on two occasions, but had to hang up her racquet due to injuries and a lack of form.
She had some great battles with the likes of Serena Williams, Simona Halep and Maria Sharapova during her best days.
For all the rivalry, she is great friends with Williams and was one of the few stars to attend the tennis legend’s wedding.
Wozniacki’s heartbreak and rebound
Wozniacki made the news when she was dating golf sensation Rory McIlroy. The Northern Irishman was also the World No.1 and has won multiple majors on the circuit.
The pair dated for three years from 2011 to 2014 and they were engaged to be married too. Wozniacki and McIlroy were supposed to tie the knot in 2014, but the golfer ended that relationship and took the blame.

Wozniacki then shared some details about the breakup and highlighted that McIlroy called her to finish their relationship.
The tennis ace then added that she had some requirements for who she wanted to date, and one thing that stood out was that she was looking for someone taller (h/t Guardian):
“I would like a taller guy so I can wear high heels. I’m pretty strict with my box ticking,” she said. “I look for someone who is honest, fun to be around and doesn’t take himself too seriously.”
She then started to date NBA star David Lee, who was known for his time with the Golden State Warriors.
The 36-year-old American won the NBA title in 2015 and is a two-time NBA all-star. He has also played for the Boston Celtics, Dallas Mavericks and the San Antonio Spurs.
The pair were engaged in November 2017, and the tennis ace was happy at her new start:
