WTA Tour 2017

Caroline Wozniacki

Caroline Wozniacki is a name you already know.

The former world No. 1, however, is just 26-years-old. At such a young age, she has already topped the rankings and impressed on tour.

2017 could prove to be the year that the Danish tennis star breaks back into the top 10. She ended the 2016 WTA Tour reaching world No. 19 in the rankings. A strong second half of the season brought Wozniacki back to life.

With 25 career singles titles on the tour, Wozniacki has the experience necessary to be the best in tennis. She will undoubtedly be a contender in all of the major tournaments where she will seek her first ever Grand Slam title.

Look for Wozniacki to once again become a top name in tennis.
