Former Wimbledon and Roland Garros champion Ann Haydon-Jones tells the Daily Mail that perhaps Caroline Wozniacki should focus more on tennis than launching her own line of lingerie.

“Maybe she feels she can’t win the Grand Slams,” said Haydon-Jones who beat Billie Jean King for the 1969 Wimbledon crown. “Maybe she accepts that she can’t and wants fame in a different direction. I think she probably would like to win a Grand Slam, but I’m not sure she’s good enough.”

The Hall of Famer also said that while she understands while players such as Maria Sharapova, Ana Ivanovic, Maria Kirilenko and  Laura Robson market their beauty, that tennis should come first.

“Part of me says they should get on with the game,” said Haydon-Jones. "I know my parents would have said that to me. But part of me also says that, if you want to attract the spectators with some attractive players, it’s a good thing.”
