(SOUNDBITE) (English) CAROLINE WOZNIACKI ON WHY SHE IS RETIRING SAYING: "There's a lot of thoughts.

Just, it's something I've been thinking about for for a long time, for a while and I just looked in my life and my career and everything else, and I just had a look inside of myself.

And it felt right.

It felt like the right time and for many reasons.

But, I'm out here and I love this sport and I love everything that it's given me.

And I love being out there and competing.

But I'm ready to start a new chapter in my life." STORY: Former world number one Caroline Wozniacki has said that retiring from tennis will be "emotional."
