"He has other plans" – Caroline Wozniacki shares amusing detail about being a mother to three-month old son
Since hanging up her racquet, Caroline Wozniacki has immersed herself in one of the toughest and most demanding jobs in the world – being a mother.
The 2018 Australian Open winner took a leave from tennis in 2020, after her stint at the tournament Down Under. Wozniacki’s decision to retire from the sport came just a few months after her marriage to former NBA basketball player David Lee in June 2019.
The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Olivia, in June 2021, and in October 2022, Wozniacki and Lee were blessed with their second child, son James.
The mother-of-two recently shared an amusing incident involving James with her fans on social media. The 32-year-old revealed that while she was enthusiastic about her three-month-old learning new things and following a sleep schedule, it wasn’t meant to be just yet.
“Starting him early … he has other plans” she said smiling, as she shared a picture of James fast asleep in an Instagram story.
Wozniacki had earlier revealed that she had already started introducing her daughter Olivia, aged a year and a half, to tennis.
“We started training camp already,” she said.
She also shared Olivia’s fun day on the golf course, suggesting that the little one was having the time of her life exploring various sports.
"I have recently played more and enjoying it" – Caroline Wozniacki on reconnecting with tennis
Caroline Wozniacki’s fans and followers have thoroughly missed the Danish tennis sensation since her retirement from the sport in 2020. The former World No. 1, however, has made her presence felt through her interactions on social media and in her new role as a commentator for ESPN.
During one recent social media interaction, Wozniacki revealed that she had been playing tennis and was enjoying the sport more of late. The Grand Slam winner, who disclosed her battle with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2018, also stated that her illness was under control.
"I have recently played more and enjoying it. My RA is pretty controlled at the moment," she wrote on Instagram.
Speaking about whether she might stage a comeback in the future, the 32-year stated that although she misses playing tennis competitively, she doesn’t regret calling it a day on the hard work required to maintain a high ranking.
"I don't miss the hard work it takes to be at the top of the game. But I love the sport and I miss the competitiveness at times," she said.
