Ex-World Number One Caroline Wozniacki Retires From Tennis After Defeat at Australian Open

Former world number one tennis player Caroline Wozniacki lost her third round match to Tunisian Ons Jabeur at the Australian Open

"It has been a great ride", the 2018 champion said after the game. "I think it was only fitting that my last match ended with a forehand error".

​The tournament was the last for Wozniacki, who had won her Grand Slam title in Melbourne back in 2018. The tense game ended in a score of 7-5 3-6 7-5, drawing a line under her fruitful career. For now, she shares 17th place on the Open Era list with American Tracy Austin.

The decision to leave the sport comes as she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis back in 2018, but, according to the athlete, it was not the only thing that caused her to withdraw from tennis, saying she wanted to spend more time with her family.
