In 2020, the Danish tennis star departed from the tour in order to prioritize her family. Now, after almost three seasons, making a comeback on the court at the age of 33 wasn’t an easy choice for the former Australian Open champion. But, during this challenging phase, Wozniacki received unwavering support from her best friend and the ‘Queen of the Court,’ Serena Williams.
