Former World No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki has hinted that she may retire from international tennis to become a "young mother". The Danish star was quoted as saying by a London-based magazine that she wants to start a family with fiance Rory Mcllory.

The veteran Danish player said that she has no ambitions of reclaiming tennis glory and would prefer to look after her family in the future. "I want to be a relatively young mother and I don't see it as being too far in the future," she was quoted as saying by Lime magazine. "Therefore I have no dream to make my mark. Instead, I enjoy economic freedom my hard work has given me."

Caroline , currently ranked 14th in the world, has been in a relationship with golfer McIlroy since 2011 and the two announced their engagement on January 1 this year.

Although the two have grabbed limelight due to their relationship, Wozniacki has been unable to win any major tournaments in the recent past. Going the family way may come as a shock to her fans and the tennis fraternity but Wozniacki seems to have made her mind to bid farewell to the tennis court.
