However, she couldn’t have done it without a great support system. Her husband and her family are motivating her further to make sure she comes back with a bang.

“It’s certainly not easy to find the right balance—and I’m so lucky to have a supportive husband, supportive parents, and the help of a nanny—but I think it’s possible. I want to prove that to myself and those women,” Caroline said. She further added, “You can have both: You can be thrilled with your family and with everything at home and still have a career—and be great at it.”

The Danish player has found a new light in her life. She is quite happy with her personal life. Now she is ready to set the court on fire once again.
