Grand Slam success hasn’t changed Caroline Wozniacki’s life
Two weeks after making her Grand Slam breakthrough, Caroline Wozniacki insists “life hasn’t changed at all”.
The Dane won her maiden Grand Slam at the end of January when she beat Simona Halep in three sets in the Australian Open final.
She made her competitive return only a few days after winning at Melbourne Park as she took part in the St Petersburg Open, but lost in the quarter-final and then had last week off as it was a Fed Cup week.
However, the 27-year-old says things are “still the same”.
“Life hasn’t changed at all,” she told AFP. “Life is the same. Still the same when I go back on the practice courts, I still have things that I need to work on and I still get stuff from my dad saying move your feet, do this. So, nothing has changed in that regard.”
Naturally Wozniacki received praise and congratulations from far and wide after winning the Australian Open, but unfortunately her favourite team, English Premier League outfit Liverpool, have failed to come to the party.
She admits she was a bit “jealous” as fellow Reds fan Kyle Edmund did get a congratulatory message after he reached the semi-finals Down Under.
“I actually haven’t gotten congratulations from Liverpool,” she said. “I saw that Edmund did, so I felt kind of jealous a little bit. But I guess I’ll have to wait.”
Wozniacki will be back in action this week as she has signed up for the Qatar Open that will also feature Simona Halep, Garbine Muguruza, Angelique Kerber and Maria Sharapova.
