Former world number one Caroline Wozniacki remains confident that she can lift a Grand Slam title.
Wozniacki would have left the top 100 if she had suffered defeat in the opening round at the US Open earlier this year – a fate which potentially could have seen her prematurely bring the curtain down on her career.
But the 26-year-old came through that test and still has her sights set on winning a major after twice previously reaching the US Open final.
“To be totally honest, I've been taking it one year at a time for the last few years', she told Ekstra Bladet.
“I've looked at how my body felt, and how I've felt. It's not something [retirement] I'm thinking about right now.
“I've always felt that [I could win a Grand Slam]. There are no names in the field where I think, 'Oops, that'll be tough if I draw her'.
“Serena [Williams] of course is tough. You know when you're playing her at her highest level she's really tough to beat. There you need to really – really – play up to your best.
“I feel better equipped and comfortable and hope I can get a good start next year.”
