Former world number one and 2018 Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki will retire from professional tennis after competing in Melbourne next year.
The Danish star started her professional tennis career in 2005 at the age of 15.
She has a career record of 630 wins, 262 losses, and has earned more than $51 million in prize money
Her biggest wins have been the 2018 Australian Open and the 2017 WTA Finals
The 29-year-old from Denmark.
Wozniacki said her decision to stop playing “has nothing to do with my health.”
“I’ve always told myself when the time comes, that there are things away from tennis that I want to do more, then it’s time to be done,” Wozniacki wrote.
“In recent months, I’ve realized that there is a lot more in life that I’d like to accomplish off the court.”
This created two questions in mind.
1/ Shall someone takes retirement in life from a specific domain?
2/ Shall allow self to choose another field.
My first point is against retirement. There cannot be any retirement in life. I have seen a couple of people in life between the age of 60 to 80 years and working in an excellent manner.
One has to give 100% of life to the world before the final exit. No compromise, No adjustments, and No escapism.
The trouble with retirement is that you never get an off. To be very honest, in retirement you want to enjoy life, provided you have enough money in the pocket. You have to be young by mind not by body.
You have to work hard and hard. You have not to take any option until the last breath. You have to bring out your potential form within. I found out retirement means active in life, or I don’t know what the hell it means. But to me, retirement means doing what you have fun doing. The joy of retirement comes in those everyday pursuits that embrace the joy of life; to experience daily the freedom to invest one’s life-long knowledge for the betterment of others; and, to allocate time to pursuits that only received, in years of working, a fleeting moment.
You cannot retire from life until the last breath.
