Which Events Is Caroline Wozniacki Set To Play On Her Comeback

by Alex Waite

Caroline Wozniacki will return to professional tennis after being away since 2020 with a couple of wildcard entries.

The remarkable return from the former WTA number one comes after she initially retired from tennis in January 2020 after the Australian Open. However, the Danish star recently announced her plans to step back on the court and compete for titles that she had never won in her previous stint.

One tournament the 32-year-old has already received a wildcard entry for is the 2023 US Open in September. However, in preparation for the final Grand Slam of the season, Wozniacki will participate in the Canadian Open in Montreal and the Danish player is extremely excited to return to a venue where she holds fond memories as she revealed.

"I am extremely grateful to have been given the opportunity to play at the National Bank Open. I won my first big title in Montreal when I was just 20 years old, making it particularly fitting to be the tournament that kickstarts this second chapter in my career. I cannot wait to get back on the courts and compete against the best players in the world. I have missed it tremendously."

Wozniacki told the Canadian Open official site

During her first spell in professional tennis, Wozniacki rose to number one in the world for 71 weeks, won the 2018 Australian Open and won more than 30 WTA titles. In response to the Dane's upcoming appearance at the Canadian Open, Tournament Director, Valerie Tetreault, said the fans and spectators will be eager to see Wozniacki's much-anticipated return in Montreal.

"We are thrilled to welcome Caroline (Wozniacki) back to the WTA Tour and back to Montreal,”

"She has done so much for the sport of tennis, on and off the court, and we are honoured that our tournament will be her first event as she returns to the tour. I’m sure the fans in Montreal will be excited to see her back in action after her three-year absence from professional tennis. We wish her all the best throughout this exciting journey.”
