From baby to early tennis days of Caroline Wozniacki


Now that Caroline Wozniacki is counting down the days of her professional tennis career, it’s a perfect occasion to share the Dane’s several childhood photos that I’ve been collecting over the last few years but haven’t added to my Little Tennis Stars series yet.

Caroline Wozniacki first pro match

Caroline turned pro in 2005, at the age of 15. The above photo is from her first ever match on the WTA tour, a first-round against top seed and eventual champion Patty Schnyder at the Western & Southern Financial Group Women’s Open.

Memories: Caroline Wozniacki and recently-retired Dominika Cibulkova when they were about 14 years old, in Mexico.

Caroline Wozniacki and her dad

Little Caroline skiing with her father Piotr, the mastermind behind her tennis career. Wozniacki often points out that her father taught her everything she knows and calls him her friend, her confidant, her mentor, and her teacher.
