Here's how the tennis world is reacting to Caroline Wozniacki's Australian Open victory.
Caroline Wozniacki captured her first career Grand Slam title on Saturday, defeating No. 1 Simona Halep to win the 2018 Australian Open.
Wozniacki, in her 43rd Grand Slam appearance, battled Halep for three sets in a thrilling match two hours and 50 minutes, before winning win 7-6(2), 3-6, 6-4.
Both women saved match points en route to the championship match, the first time in the Open Era that both finalists did so at a Grand Slam.
With the win, Wozniacki will reclaim the WTA World No. 1 ranking exactly six years since she last held it, a WTA Rankings record for time in between stints at No.1.
Here's how the tennis world reacted to Wozniacki's title.
