“I think being new Grand Slam champion and world number one sounds pretty good. I’m very excited for that. It’s a dream come true”
Caroline Wozniacki said it was a “dream come true” after she finally claimed her first Grand Slam title and regained world No 1 status at the Australian Open.
Wozniacki outlasted Simona Halep in a gruelling women’s singles final to win her maiden Slam in Melbourne after 43 majors and two failed attempts in finals.
The Dane, who saved match points in her second-round win over Jana Fett, will regain the top ranking next week for the first time in six years.
