Wozniacki seeking her 2nd Grand Slam title

MONTE CARLO- Reigning Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki said she believes she can go “all the way” at next month’s French Open, but is wary of a possible early clash with the returning Serena Williams.

The Dane won against world number One Simona Halep in an exciting final in January to win a maiden title.

Wozniacki said, “I’m excited for the challenge and I definitely believe I can go all the way, it’s not going to be easy, but I believe in myself,”

“I’m playing so well and when I play my best tennis I’m really hard to beat.”

“I don’t think it makes much of a difference whether I’m one or two, because I won in Australia and they know I’m the one with the last Grand Slam under my belt, so you definitely always have a target on your back,” she added at a sponsor’s event for tech start-up Lympo.

She spoke about the clay season that has started, “But I love that I can go into a French Open without too much pressure on myself.”

“I feel like there are no real clay-court specialists on the tour right now and I think that makes my motivation even better,” Wozniacki said this, who lost in last year’s French Open quarter-finals to eventual champion Jelena Ostapenko.

“I definitely think that I’ve improved (on clay), but over the course of my career I’ve won a few tournaments on clay before so it’s all about trying to get things to click and get that feel back.”
