Caroline Wozniacki's glittering tennis career ended in tears at the Australian Open when she was beaten by lower-ranked Ons Jabeur of Tunisia. The Danish former world number one had announced in December that the Australian Open would be her final tournament.
The 29-year-old brought the curtain down on a career that saw her win 30 WTA titles, with her sole Grand Slam triumph coming in 2018 at Melbourne Park.
She finished 2010 and 2011 as world number one, and ascended to the top ranking again in 2018, the same year she finally won her maiden Grand Slam.
