Caroline WozniackiCaroline Wozniacki, who recently launched her own underwear brand, is focused on the exploits of her native Denmark at the Euro Championship finals in Poland and the Ukraine.

But the football finals will not mean that the former Eastbourne champion will take her eye off the ball for the pre-Wimbledon tournament and the Championships.

Wozniacki, who became the first Scandinavian to become world no.1 on the WTA Singles Tour, explained:

“My brother plays football and my dad was a player. I grew up watching the game and I also played as a child.

“It was inevitable that I would develop an interest in football, and that passion has just grown up with me.”

Wozniacki, born to Polish parents at Odense in Denmark, admitted:

“I feel more Danish because I was born and raised there, but my parents are Polish so there’s a part of me that is from Poland that I don’t want to forget. So I have two teams that I can support at Euro 2012.

“From a Polish point of view I think it will be great for the country, hopefully many tourists will come in. They have built new stadiums, new roads and infrastructure.

“Denmark has a really tough group with the Netherlands, Portugal and Germany. You can be sure there won’t be any boring games. But with my heart I hope for a Poland v Denmark final.”
