Wozniacki and Lee are pictured on holiday in Venice in 2017. The former world No. 1 tennis champion announced her retirement in a lengthy post on Instagram. The unselfish star told her followers "there is a lot more in life that I'd like to accomplish off the court."

"I've played professionally since I was 15 years old. In that time, I've experienced an amazing first chapter of my life. With 30 WTA singles titles, a world #1 ranking for 71 weeks, a WTA Finals victory, 3 Olympics, including carrying the flag for my native Denmark, and winning the 2018 Australian Open Grand slam championship, I've accomplished everything I could ever dream of on the court."

Wozniacki probably realizes she only has a handful of years to carry healthy babies to term without going the IVF route.

"I've always told myself, when the time comes, that there are things away from tennis that I want to do more, then it's time to be done. In recent months, I've realized that there is a lot more in life that I’d like to accomplish off the court. Getting married to David [Lee] was one of those goals and starting a family with him while continuing to travel the world and helping raise awareness about rheumatoid arthritis (project upcoming) are all passions of mine moving forward."
