Caroline Wozniacki’s ‘This is me’ underwear range
Caroline Wozniacki, the former Eastbourne champion, has dropped from world no1 to no7 in only six months – but has title ambitions again.
The blonde Dane has suffered a 10-month drought without capturing a WTA Tour title, and has been widely criticised across the media as this slump in form has gone hand in hand with her romance to golfing ace Rory McIlroy.
Wozniacki, who proved a popular Devonshire Park champion in 2009 followed that triumph later that year by finishing runner-up in the US Open.
The 21-year-old recently installed new coach Thomas Johansson, the former Swedish Davis Cup star, to help her return that winning edge which propelled her to world no1 at the end of last season before she slid down the rankings this term.
“I brought Thomas in to help out as he has so much experience and he can hopefully make a difference – but ultimately I am in charge as I hit the shots.
“Eastbourne is a good ahead of Wimbledon. Grass is a surface where you really need to be on your toes, but it can go against you so quickly.
“And I have to believe I can win Wimbledon this year because the women’s game is wide open – you never know what will happen.”
