Caroline Wozniacki has been bestowed with the Diamond Aces Award 2015. The award is given to the player who actively promotes women’s tennis to the fans, media and local communities. This is done by attending WTA events and doing off-court promotional charitable activities spearheaded by the organization. Wozniacki has consistently performed above and beyond in doing this. This is Wozniacki’s second Diamond Aces Award – having won this first back in 2011.
“Thank you for this award,” Wozniacki said during the WTA Zhuhai Elite Trophy tournament. “It’s a great honor and I take great pride in being a role model to everyone. It’s an honor to win this for the second time and hopefully I can win it again – but if not it means there are youngsters coming up or other girls on the tour who are doing a great job of giving back. I’m proud of everyone out here and happy we can promote our sport – make everyone aware we’re here and women’s sport is important.”
The Dane’s contribution this season include taking part in several WTA Live Fan Access episodes, hosting a Junior Road to Singapore kids clinic, visiting the Embassy of Denmark in Kuala Lumpur following her Malaysian Open title victory, being a brand ambassador for USANA and Dubai Duty Free – both WTA sponsors and gracing the Mutua Madrid Open Charity Day with close friend Serena Williams.
“Caroline is a great champion on and off the court,” said WTA President Micky Lawler. “What she does to make tennis impactful is remarkable and so generous. She is such an exceptional human being, which she has demonstrated by winning this award twice already. Congratulations to Caroline, and thank you for everything she does to enhance the tour and live by the values the WTA stands for.”
