About Caroline

Caroline has always been a sports fan - like the rest of her family. Her parents, Piotr and Anna Wozniacki, have both been professional athletes. Anna played volleyball for Poland, and Piotr can look back on a career as professional soccer player. The Polish couple moved to Denmark in the late 80s when Piotr went to play for the Danish soccer club B1909 in Odense. After a couple of years in Denmark, Caroline was born, on July 11, 1990.

Already from the age of two, Caroline and her brother Patrik (four years older than Caroline) participated in a lot physical activities, and they were taught how to swim at a young age. As her elder brother started playing soccer, Caroline wanted to play the game as well. And as he took up tennis, she followed closely in his footsteps and instantly fell in love with the sport. Caroline could be seen playing tennis for hours with her dad at the tennis club in their home town Koge. She didn't seem to be able to get enough of the game, constantly pushing her dad to play yet another match with her.

The hard training quickly paid off. Nine-year old Caroline started to win the matches against the rest of her family. When she won the singles title in the Osaka Mayor's Cup in Japan at 14 years of age in October 2004, it was clear that she had the potential to achieve great results as a tennis player. Since then, she has won quite a few titles, including the Junior Championships in Wimbledon in 2006.

Since then, Caroline officially turned pro and has won six Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Singles Titles including the Japan Open, New Haven and Stockholm in 2008 and in 2009 she has won the Ponte Vedra Beach, Eastbourne and New Haven titles. In addition to this, Caroline was also named and awarded the 2008 Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Newcomer of the Year presented at the 2009 Sony Ericsson Open, and is the youngest singles player ranked in the top 10 in the world.
