Former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki says she is pleased with her career up to this point, even though she has fallen to No. 11 in the rankings and has only won three titles in the past two years. The Dane, who has won 21 titles overall, hasn’t reached a Grand Slam semifinal since the 2011 U.S. Open.

“I don’t think anything has gone wrong and being No. 1 for two years is a pretty good effort,” Wozniacki told Al Jazeera. “I’ve achieved basically anything I could on the tour. I’ve won 21 tournaments and been No. 1 for so long, but winning a Grand Slam definitely is the biggest goal of mine that I haven’t achieved yet. You always try and improve so obviously that’s the incentive when you onto the practice courts.”
