The former world No.1 will return to Ericsson Open a third time

Since Caroline Wozniacki’s last appearance in 2011, Ericsson Open has matured to a world class event. The tournament regularly attracts the biggest names of the game as Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber and was voted “The tournament of the Year” by the WTA players back to back in 2015 and last year.

The classic tennis event in Båstad, the resort on the Swedish south-west coast, is just a short distance cross the sound from Caroline’s native Denmark.

– I am really happy to get back and play Ericsson Open. I have great memories from my previous visits. The beautiful venue next to the ocean, the professional organization and the fact that it’s almost like playing home in Denmark makes it very special, says Caroline Wozniacki.

– We started Ericsson open back in 2009 with the ambition of promoting women tennis in Scandinavia. Therefore, it feels truly great to be able to welcome back the first Scandinavian world No.1 ever. Caroline reached the final back in 2009 only 19-years old. Since then she has won an amazing 25 singles titles on the WTA Tour and topped the world ranking. Today, she’s one of the biggest and most well-known names on the tour and we’re so happy to have Caroline back, says Tournament Director, Nina Wennerström.
