CAROLINE WOZNIACKI is set to return to professional tennis at the US Open – and she believes she can win majors.

Yet in an interview with Vogue magazine, the 32-year-old has announced her plans to make a comeback because she has unfinished business within the sport.

US Open chiefs have awarded her a wildcard to play in the main draw in New York in late August and early September.

Wozniacki – a former fiancée to golfer Rory McIlroy – said: “Over these past three years away from the game I got to make up for lost time with my family.

“I became a mother and now have two beautiful children I am so grateful for.

“But I still have goals I want to accomplish.

“I want to show my kids that you can pursue your dreams no matter your age or role. We decided as a family it’s time. I’m coming back to play and I can’t wait.

“Am I nervous? Not really. I’m coming back to something I love.

“Yes, I’ll be nervous before a match. I’m okay with that. I’m great with that.

“Can I win the US Open? I think so.

“Can I win the Australian Open? I think so. That’s why I’m doing this. And I guess we’ll see what happens.

“I think it’s a great story. I think it’s awesome.”

Several elite players, like Serena Williams and Kim Clijsters, have become mums and then returned to the WTA Tour with varying degrees of success.
