Caroline Wozniacki was inducted into the Danish Hall of Fame for her contributions on the tennis court for her country.

“I don’t think we will see her on a professional tennis court again” – Caroline Wozniacki on Serena Williams
In a recent interview, Caroline Wozniacki revealed that her friend and 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams may not be coming back to the sport after playing her final competitive match at the 2022 US Open.
The Dane stated that it is highly unlikely that Williams will make a return to the professional circuit, but claims that she may play some exhibition matches.
“I don’t think so. If she plays an exhibition I think that would be lucky but I don’t see her back playing on tour. There are just so many things going on. I think she loves the game so much and it’s been her life for so many years. But at the same time, she is busy. I don’t think we will see her on a professional tennis court again,” said the former World No. 1 to Tennis Channel.
“Probably because she beat me way too many times. No, but really I think the fact that she’s just a great person. She’s not only in my opinion, the greatest tennis player of all time, the greatest that I have ever played against; she pushed me and all the other women to play better and step up, but also off the court, she’s so thoughtful,” Wozniacki said.
