Caroline Wozniacki’s daughter Olympia may only be one-and-a-half years old, but the Dane has already started “training” for tennis under the watchful eye of her mum and dad.
Taking to Instagram on Friday, the former Australian Open champion shared video footage of her daughter’s “camp”, including adorable footage of the tot doing exercise runs on their home lawn.
A second video showed Olivia playing with tennis balls and throwing them to her father David Lee – a two-time NBA All-Star – with her mother beaming with pride at her child’s prowess.

Caroline Wozniacki was a former junior no. World No. 2 Wozniacki at the 2020 Australian Open
Caroline Wozniacki was an early bloomer herself, making her ITF junior tour debut at the age of 13. A former Orange Bowl winner, the Dane rose to world No. 2 on the circuit, winning the Wimbledon girls’ title in 2006.
On the main WTA tour, the former world number 1 made her debut in 2005, but did not win her first title until 2008, when she won the Nordic Light Open in Stockholm without dropping a set. However, for her first Grand Slam, Wozniacki had to wait until 2018, when she won the Australian Open as the runner-up.
The 32-year-old won the title by defeating Simona Halep in the final, becoming the first Dane to win a singles Grand Slam in tennis history. She defeated Kiki Bertens, Magdalena Rybarikova, Carla Suarez Navarro and Elise Mertens along the way.
Caroline Wozniacki had previously finished as runner-up at two Majors, falling at the US Open in 2009 to Kim Clijsters and Serena Williams at the 2014 edition at Flushing Meadows. By winning the event in Melbourne, Wozniacki climbed to the top of the WTA rankings, a position she has held for 71 weeks in total.
Wozniacki is one of four women to become No. 1 before winning their first Grand Slam — Halep, Clijsters and Amelie Mauresmo are the other three. Denmark ended her run at the 2020 Australian Open, losing in the third round to Ons Jabeur. After her retirement, she played a farewell match in Copenhagen in April 2022 to say goodbye to her fans at home for the last time.
