More than two years after retiring, Caroline Wozniacki officially bid farewell to tennis in an exhibition match played in Copenhagen, Denmark against good friend Angelique Kerber.

“The Final One” was supposed to be Wozniacki’s last competition set to take place in May 2020 and her opponent was supposed to be Serena Williams. The COVID-19 pandemic forced the event to be postponed and two years later Kerber stepped in as Williams’ replacement in the exhibition.

Shortly before “The Final One” exho, Kerber posted a photo with Wozniacki, saying: “In a few hours, friends become rivals (again).” Wozniacki and Kerber faced each other as many as 15 times on the WTA Tour and their close head-to-head stats illustrate their rivalry. Supported by her home crowd, Wozniacki won “The Final One” exhibition 7-5 6-4, so we can say that the Dane unofficially leveled their record to 8-8 at Royal Arena.

Besides becoming a mom since ending her tennis career at the 2020 Australian Open, the former world No.1 Wozniacki has also started working as a Tennis Channel host and commentator.

Besides her TV work, Wozniacki continues to land sponsorship deals. Her most recent partnership is with Bang & Olufsen, a world-renowned Danish company known for their distinctive range of high-quality audio, picture and multimedia products.
