Wozniacki posted a video of herself playing in front of the iconic Casino Square in Monaco. She hit a shot with an iron, and cheers can be heard around her as the ball rolls close to the hole. Dressed up in formal clothing and heels, the tennis player showed the world her excellent athleticism and diversity of play.

 

However, this is not the first time the former world number one has shown the world her golf skills. Another time back in 2014, she posted a video of herself practicing golf. In her first attempt to hit a driver, she managed a respectable distance of 200 yards.
