Grand Slam winner Wozniacki happy to prove her doubters wrong

Australian Open

Now that her resume is complete, Caroline Wozniacki won’t have to field the “no Grand Slam” question ever again.

The Dane lifted her maiden major on Saturday when she won the Australian Open after beating Simona Halep in an epic three-set match on Rod Laver Arena.

She also replaced Halep as world No 1, but for Wozniacki it is a big relief that people will no longer bug her about not having won a Grand Slam.

“I’ve gotten this question a million times or a hundred thousand times and it’s really nice to prove people wrong, [those] who doubted me,” the 26-year-old said.

“It’s really nice not to have to answer the ‘no Grand Slam’ question ever again and now finally I have the world No 1 and a Grand Slam title. It’s very special.

“[This] means a lot. I think I had everything else on my resume: No 1, year-end championship, big tournaments, 27 titles. I basically have beaten any player that’s been playing and is on Tour right now.

“This was the only thing missing and I think it means something extra even that it took a little bit longer. But I made it here.”
