"I Want To Be a Relatively Young Mother," says Caroline Wozniacki

Caroline Wozniacki, who became engaged to beau Rory McIlroy earlier this year, suggested to Lime magazine that she would like to start a family sooner rather than later. 

The couple announced their engagement on New Year’s Eve after three years together. 

Wozniacki, who appears on the cover of the issue, told the magazine: "I want to be a relatively young mother, and I do not see it as being too far in the future."

Wozniacki, who fell out of the top 10 in the world rankings earlier this year, spent 67 weeks as the WTA's top player despite having never captured a Grand Slam title.

"Therefore, I have no dream to make my mark. Instead, I enjoy the economic freedom my hard work has given me. It means I can give my children the best start in life, by being there 100 percent for them."

Evonne Goolagong, Lindsay Davenport and Kim Clijsters all found success returning to tennis after becoming mothers; Goolagong and Clijsters each won major titles in their "second careers," while Davenport won four titles after giving bith to her first child, and was the 2007 WTA Comeback Player of the Year.

On the court this week in Madrid, Wozniacki struggled with a knee injury and slumped to a 6-3, 6-3 defeat to Roberta Vinci in the second round on Wednesday.
