Caroline Wozniacki is still interested in running marathons, but wants to hold off on more until retiring from tennis. The Dane ran the New York City Marathon earlier this year.

"I have done one marathon and would definitely like to do another one. I actually qualified for the Boston Marathon," said Wozniacki, but added that she would not be running the race because it is during the tennis season.

"So for now I am very happy to be playing tennis and I am focusing on that. I’ve done one marathon and for now that’s enough. Maybe after my tennis career ends I might do another one or even try my hand at triathlons. That would be a really good challenge."

The former No. 1 had a bounce-back season that included a run to the U.S Open final and a No. 8 finish in the rankings. Looking forward to the new season, she said, "I just want to win as many tournaments as possible. And winning a Grand Slam would be amazing."

Wozniacki has reached two Grand Slam finals during her career.
