Their premiere doubles venture together
The duo Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki have never played professional tennis together.

The two best friends on the professional tour Williams and Wozniacki have played against each other 11 times on the WTA courts and the Dane could defeat the American just once on the Miami court in Florida, USA.
Wozniacki’s retirement from tennis
A few weeks ago, the Danish tennis icon Caroline Wozniacki announced her retirement from tennis. She will be hanging her tennis racquets and putting an end to her 15-year-old service to the WTA Tour after the Australian Open 2020. The 2018 Australian Open champion Wozniacki announced her retirement on a TV show Good Morning America.
She believes that there more interesting ventures in life to explore, she wants to experience something new and she is done with professional tennis.
“I’ve accomplished everything I could ever dream of on the court,” Wozniacki announced. “I’ve always told myself when the time comes, that there are things away from tennis that I want to do more, then it’s time to be done.”
Williams vs Wozniacki in May 2020 on Dane’s home turf
The Dane will be culminating her career in Melbourne but she also aspires to play in front of her home crowd for the one last time before she retires. To fulfill that reverie of Wozniacki, Williams will be playing an exhibition match against her in Copenhagen, Denmark in the month of May next year.
“The time has come when I stop my career and I am very much looking forward to playing my very last home game in front of such a large audience. It will be something very special and a day I really look forward to.” Wozniacki said.
