Caroline was born in Odense, Denmark to a pair of Polish immigrants. Anna, her mother, was a national level volleyball player for Poland, while her father, Piotr used to play professional football.
Sport runs in the family as Caroline’s brother, Patrik, is a former football for Denmark.
Her parents actually moved to Denmark after Piotr moved to the country to continue his footballing career.
Wozniacki was initially coached by her father but had other coaches as she continued her development.
She teamed up with her father again in 2014 and worked with him till the end of her career.
Tennis career and current rankings
The Dane was a prodigious talent right from her junior days. She achieved her best ranking of 2 in the ITF junior circuit before moving into the big leagues.
She made a big name in 2008 as she reached the fourth rounds of the Australian Open and the US Open.
Wozniacki reached the final of the US Open in 2009 but was unable to win the title. The Dane was talented, but also inconsistent and her next Grand Slam final came in the United States in 2014.
The 29-year-old was a World No.1 twice, and also holds the gap for the longest time in between being No.1.
She did break her Grand Slam duck by winning the 2018 Australian Open, but that was as good as it got for her.
She won 30 WTA titles in her career, but injuries cut short her time on the courts. She also confirmed an arthritis diagnosis which was one reason why she retired from the game after the 2020 Australian Open.
Caroline Wozniacki net worth and prize money
The Dane has won $35million as prize money in her career thanks to her several trophies. Although she struggled with injuries, she was still one of the top stars during her playing days.
Reports have also suggested that her net worth is around the $30million mark, but that could be a lot more given the several endorsement and sponsorship deals she has signed over the years.
She also won $15,000 in 2020 prior to her retirement, but that was due to her playing a few tournaments and then exiting the Australian Open at the round of 32.
