World number 9, and former World number 1, tennis star Caroline Wozniacki starts her Wimbledon campaign today and hopes to make it into the quarter finals for the first time. Caroline is dating World number 2 golfer Rory McIlroy and says that she hopes he will come and support her in the second week of Wimbledon.
Wozniacki explained, "I just really like having Rory around and it is great that he comes to support me like at Eastbourne. He has the Irish Open the first week of Wimbledon so hopefully he will be able to follow me the second week."
She added, “Whether it is here or whether it is somewhere else, it is very similar for me. Grass is one of my favourite surfaces, if not the favourite. I am definitely going in feeling confident and happy. It is never easy but I just enjoy Wimbledon so much and hopefully I can get a good run."
Caroline Wozniacki will be last to play on court three today at Wimbledon, as she faces Spanish player Estrella Cabeza Candela in the first round. Caroline will be hoping that she avoids another shock first round exit like she did last year.
