Tennis star Caroline Wozniacki has hinted she’s prepared to retire from tennis to become a ‘young mother’.

Speaking to Lime magazine, the Danish sporting star hints she would like to start a family with her fiancé, Irish golfer Rory McIlroy (24).

The couple announced their engagement on New Year’s Eve after three years together.

“I want to be a relatively young mother, and I do not see it as being too far in the future,” the 23-year-old told the publication.

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

“It means I can give my children the best start in life by being there 100 per cent for them.”

Caroline currently stands at No 14 in the world rankings.

In March, she announced her father Piotr was going to resume his coaching duties with her.

Beforehand, she was with Maria Sharapova’s former mentor Thomas Hogstedt although it was for a short period only.

Caroline has earned €11.5m throughout her tennis career, despite never having won a major tournament.
