She may have once been the proud holder of the world No 1 title.

But tennis star Caroline Wozniacki (23) has revealed how she may give it all up to become a stay-at-home mum.

The Danish stunner, who's due to marry golfing star Rory McIlroy (24) at a ceremony in New York, has said she definitely wants to start a family sooner rather than later.

"I want to be a relatively young mother and I do not see it as being too far in the future," she said.

"Therefore, I have no dream to make my mark. Instead, I enjoy the economic freedom my hard work has given me.

"It means I can give my children the best start in life by being there 100pc for them."

The couple, dubbed Wozzilroy by the media, got engaged during a trip to Australia last December and announced their happy news on New Year's Eve.

They have been dating for three years and have indicated they've no plans to have a long engagement, hoping to walk down the aisle in the near future.


The leggy sports star is currently at No 14 in the world rankings. Last March she announced that her father Piotr was going to assume coaching duties again after her split from Maria Sharapova's former mentor Thomas Hogstedt.

Although she has never won a Grand Slam tournament, her good looks have helped her earn over €11m during her career.

And the lucky sports star said that she has achieved so much she no longer has to worry financially when it comes to her next move.

She said: "I'm in a situation where I do not have to think about money, everything I achieve from now on is just a plus. It's about enjoying it. You only live once."

She has been a loyal supporter to her other half and is a firm fixture on the side of the golf course during his major tournaments.

Caroline even caddied for him during an informal game before the US Masters in Augusta last April.
