Ex-número 1 do mundo, Wozniacki se aposenta do tênis aos 29 anos
A tenista dinamarquesa Caroline Wozniacki anunciou nesta sexta-feira (6) sua aposentadoria do esporte aos 29 anos de idade. Ex-número 1 do mundo, posto que ocupou por 71 semanas, Wozniacki disputará sua última competição no tênis profissional no próximo mês de janeiro, com a participação no Australian Open, palco de seu único título de Grand Slam (2018) na carreira. "Eu sempre disse para mim mesma que, quando chegasse a hora de querer fazer mais coisas longe do tênis, seria a hora de parar. Nos últimos meses, percebi que há muito na minha vida que eu gostaria de alcançar fora das quadras. Me casar com David foi uma dessas metas e começar uma família com ele, continuar a viajar o mundo e ajudar a aumentar a conscientização sobre a artrite reumática (próximo projeto) são as paixões que me motivam agora", disse a tenista, com uma postagem no Instagram. A artrite reumática citada pela tenista é uma doença autoimune que causa dor e inflamação geralmente nas articulações dos punhos e das mãos. Em outubro do ano passado, meses depois de ter conquistado o Australian Open, a dinamarquesa revelou em entrevista coletiva que sofria da doença, o que vinha atrapalhando seu desempenho recente apesar da tentativas de tratamento. Caroline Wozniacki tem 30 títulos profissionais na carreira. Campeã do Grand Slam australiano, a tenista foi duas vezes vice do US Open (2009 e 2014). Presente em três Olimpíadas, também foi a responsável por carregar a bandeira da Dinamarca na cerimônia de abertura dos Jogos Olímpicos do Rio de Janeiro, em 2016.         Ver esta publicação no Instagram                   I've played professionally since I was 15 years old. In that time I've experienced an amazing first chapter of my life. With 30 WTA singles titles, a world #1 ranking for 71 weeks, a WTA Finals victory, 3 Olympics, including carrying the flag for my native Denmark, and winning the 2018 Australian Open Grand slam championship, I've accomplished everything I could ever dream of on the court. I've always told myself, when the time comes, that there are things away from tennis that I want to do more, then it's time to be done. In recent months, I've realized that there is a lot more in life that I'd like to accomplish off the court. Getting married to David was one of those goals and starting a family with him while continuing to travel the world and helping raise awareness about rheumatoid arthritis (project upcoming) are all passions of mine moving forward. So with that, today I am announcing that I will be retiring from professional tennis after the Australian Open in January. This has nothing to do with my health and this isn't a goodbye, I look forward to sharing my exciting journey ahead with all of you! Finally, I want to thank with all my heart, the fans, my friends, my sponsors, my team, especially my father as my coach, my husband, and my family for decades of support! Without all of you I could have never have done this! Uma publicação partilhada por Caroline Wozniacki (@carowozniacki) a 6 de Dez, 2019 às 5:31 PST
