Crank up the Sweet Caroline chorus—Caroline Wozniacki is coming back to the Australian Open.

The 2018 AO champion Wozniacki and six Australian players have been awarded main-draw wild cards for the 2024 Australian Open.

The Australian Open is set for January 14-28th, 2024 at Melbourne Park.

Six Aussies—Kimberly Birrell, Olivia Gadecki, Taylah Preston, James Duckworth, Marc Polmans and Adam Walton–join Wozniacki among the seven main-draw wild cards announced today.

In the 2018 Australian Open final, World No. 1 Simona Halep was six points from her first Grand Slam crown holding a 4-3 lead in the decisive set when Wozniacki staged a career-defining comeback. 

The second-ranked Wozniacki surged through the last three games edging Halep, 7-6 (2), 3-6, 6-4, in a pulsating Australian Open final to capture her maiden major in her third Grand Slam final.

When it was done, fans inside Rod Laver Arena shared the love and respect for both women and a spirited battle.

The crowd serenaded a smiling Wozniacki to Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline while Wozniacki embraced the Daphne Akhurst Memorial Cup like a long-lost friend she couldn’t let go.

The 33-year-old Wozniacki retired from the pro circuit after bowing to Ons Jabeur at the 2020 AO.

Wozniacki wed former NBA all star David Lee on June 15th, 2019. The couple have two children—Olivia and James—and Wozniacki's tennis comeback has been a family affair.

The owner of 30 WTA titles launched her return to the pro tour last August.

Two-time US Open finalist Wozniacki defeated Petra Kvitova and Jennifer Brady en route to the 2023 US Open round of 16 where she pushed eventual-champion Coco Gauff to three sets before bowing.

Wozniacki wrapped up the 2023 season with a 4-3 record with two of her three losses coming to 2023 Grand Slam champions, including a 6-2, 7-5 loss to Wimbledon winner Marketa Vondrousova in Montreal.
