Love all in Dubai: Former WTA No 1 Caroline Wozniacki takes lessons from penguins

By Staff

Tennis superstar and former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki, spent time chilling out at Ski Dubai where she met the penguins and tried out the newly launched ‘Snow Bullet’ Zip Line, while taking a break from her hectic schedule.

Wozniacki is in Dubai to compete at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships. Having recently sacked coach Thomas Hogstedt within three months of hiring him, Wozniacki turned to Martin Mortensen, newly-crowned Australian Open champion Li Na’s former coach, in a bid to rediscover her form.

Mortensen has already identified where the current world No. 11 Wozniacki is suffering, saying: “She needs to get her joy in playing back – both in matches and on the practice court.”

It seems that Wozniacki has taken his advice to heart, and is seen enjoying thoroughly in these images before the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships opener in which the former world number one and 2011 champion Caroline Wozniacki will face 2013 Wimbledon finalist Sabine Lisicki in the first round.

Emerging as a glorious sporting destination, Dubai has been “home away from home” for Wozniacki and her golfer fiancé Rory McIlroy’s, who was in Dubai earlier this month competing in the Desert Classic golf tournament.
