Caroline Wozniacki Joins the Tennis Channel As a Commentator
The Tennis Channel will feature Caroline Wozniacki as a commentator during both the BNP Paribas Open and the Miami Open in March. This will be the first time the Danish star will work as a Tennis Channel analyst. In addition to providing analysis for these two tournaments, Wozniacki will also join Tennis Channel’s roster of commentators including Martina Navratilova, Tracy Austin and Andy Roddick.
For the past three years, Caroline Wozniacki has been the top ranked player on the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) Tour. She has made a name for herself on the tour by winning five WTA singles titles and advancing to the finals of four Grand Slam tournaments. But the 2011 season wasn’t quite as successful for the former world no. 18. She lost in the first round of the French Open, fell to a qualifier in the third round of the US Open and suffered a knee injury in the first round of the Wimbledon tournament. Although she qualified for the year-end Tournament of Champions, she ultimately ended up finishing tenth, ending her year as the lowest-ranked player in the event.
Wozniacki was expected to start her career in Brisbane but was forced to withdraw from the Porsche Grand Prix, which she had been scheduled to play in, because of a wrist injury. After that, she teamed up with former NBA player David Lee and welcomed a daughter in June of 2021. A couple of months later, the pair announced they were expecting a second child.
Wozniacki won her first title of the year in Seoul. During that event, she was paired with Serena Williams and played her first match against the American. They met again in the finals of the Shanghai International in February, where Wozniacki lost in straight sets.
While she was unable to make the semis of any of the four Grand Slams, Wozniacki did reach her third straight final at the Indian Wells Open. Her title run was the result of an incredible run through the tournament, which included wins over top-100 players such as Elena Vesnina and Elena Dementieva, as well as two wins over eventual champion Vera Zvonareva.
Although Wozniacki wasn’t able to continue her streak, she did find her feet as a commentator, revealing that she is enjoying her new role as a tennis fan. According to Wozniacki, she is learning to adapt to the different variables involved in the sport, and she is looking forward to having a more detailed perspective on the game.
In her first week of announcing her debut as a commentator, Wozniacki spoke to Tennis Channel about her career. She said that she’s “very excited” to be joining the network’s commentary team. And she is especially thrilled that she’s been able to share her love of the game with viewers.
Wozniacki will be joining the Tennis Channel’s commentary team at the BNP Paribas Open and the Sunshine Doubles in March. She’ll join a lineup of tennis stars that includes Tracy Austin, Martina Navratilova, Lindsay Davenport and Andy Roddick. These two prestigious events will be televised on the channel, and Wozniacki will be providing commentary on a total of 235 hours of live coverage.
