Biography:

Former World No. 1 on the WTA Tour, Caroline Wozniacki, put Denmark on the map in the tennis community, as she became the first Scandinavian woman to hold the top ranking position.  It’s hard to believe that the girl who’s renowned two-handed backhand, described by some as a weapon, was once unranked in the WTA. However, it was a long journey to the top for the young tennis star.  Wozniacki made her WTA debut in 2005 at the young age of 15.  Despite winning the 2006 Wimbledon Junior Girls’ Singles title, she struggled to make it past the early rounds of grand slams during her first few years in the WTA. She faced defeat in the first round of Wimbledon, and never made it further than the quarter finals in any WTA tournament, but as Wozniacki gained more experience, she began to climb in the rankings, and by 2008 she had achieved her first ranking in a Grand Slam tournament, seeded 30th at the French Open. The same year she also won her first WTA Tour title, in an impressive fashion without dropping a single set, at the Nordic Light Open in Stockholm.  She has since won 21 WTA singles titles, and has advanced as far as runner-up in the US Open and the 2010 WTA Tour Championships. In 2010, she finally reached the top seed in the WTA rankings, which she held on to through 2011.

Sports speaker Caroline Wozniacki’s success on the court has also brought her much success in the world of business and endorsement deals. In 2009 she became the new face for the line of tennis apparel designed by Stella McCartney for Adidas. Additionally she has sponsorship agreements with Compeed, Rolex, Danske Invest, Oriflame, Turkish Airlines, Proactiv, Sony Ericsson, Babolate, and e-Boks. With this impressive line up of sponsors, it is no surprise that Forbes magazine named her the second highest-earning female athlete in the world in 2011, and SportsPro magazine declared her the ninth most marketable athlete. Off the courts, Caroline is fluent in Danish, English, and Polish, and enjoys a variety of activities including handball, soccer, swimming, and playing the piano.
