As of 11 October 2010 (2010 -10-11)], Caroline Wozniacki is ranked World No. 1 on the WTA Tour. She has won twelve WTA singles titles and was the runner-up at the 2009 US Open. Despite losing out at the French Open, Denmark’s tennis belle, 20-year-old Caroline, happily chats to us about her introduction to the sport and the motivation behind every serve.
– ‘I started playing tennis around the age of seven. My father, who was a professional soccer player, introduced me and my brother Patrik to the sport. I remember we’d always play against each other from very early on and I hated it when I lost. I was pretty determined to beat him and get revenge. I started spending more and more time on the tennis court, trying to get better and managed to beat my Dad and Patrik. The first time I beat my Dad it felt great.’
It’s easy to see that tennis is an amazing sport. A mix of mental agility and physical coordination, skill and fitness, it’s also a crazy-good workout. While there are a number of female tennis players who inspire us to new levels of fitness on and off the court, here are the top five we admire.
