Wozniacki reveals she hopes to play again, in doubles

Caroline Wozniacki, the popular former world number from Denmark who retired from the pro tour in January following the Australian Open, has revealed she would consider a return to the sport if her close friend, Serena Williams asked her to play doubles.

We didn't just discuss tactics on the court, we just talked and I thought, ‘Why didn't we do this before?' Caroline Wozniacki

“Maybe, if Serena asks, I can just come back to play doubles with her in a few more tournaments,” Wozniacki told the Tennis Channel.

“But I wouldn’t even train,” she joked. “In Auckland, it was one of the most fun tournaments I’ve ever played.

“We didn’t just discuss tactics on the court, we just talked and I thought, ‘Why didn’t we do this before?'”

The pair reached the final where they lost to Asia Muhammad and Taylor Townsend in what was the only time they partnered each other in a competition.

In the eventuality that Serena agrees, it would be a delight for both sets of the players’ fans.

Following the former Australian Open’s retirement, precipitated by the rheumatoid arthritis which affected her during her last year on the tour, she admits she is still undecided what to do with herself now she has the time.

“I still don’t know what I’m going to do,” she added. “Obviously, I love this sport a lot, it has given me a lot in life (and) I made a lot of friends.”

She does have some aspirations of commentating sometime in the future whilst ruling out any form of coaching.

“I would love to do some TV work eventually, I would probably do that,” she said. “I don’t think becoming a coach is for me. I know what to do, but I have a hard time expressing myself to other people,” explaining: “I get impatient, so I don’t think it’s for me.”
