Former Champion Caroline Wozniacki Awarded Wildcard for Australian Open
In a surprising turn of events, former champion Caroline Wozniacki has been granted a wildcard entry for the upcoming Australian Open. The Danish player, who retired in 2020 but made her comeback after giving birth to her two children, is set to make her presence felt on the Grand Slam stage once again.
Wozniacki recently showcased her resilience and determination at the US Open where she reached the fourth round on her Grand Slam comeback. Although she was eventually defeated by the impressive Coco Gauff, this performance demonstrated that she still possesses a fierce competitive spirit.
The Australian Open is scheduled to commence on January 14th at Melbourne Park. However, this year’s tournament will witness an unprecedented change as it has been extended to span across 15 days. This alteration aims to minimize late-night finishes and provide players with ample time for rest and recovery.
