The Danish player, in a recent interview to Britain's Lime magazine, has spoken of starting a family with fiancé and Ireland's star golfer Rory McIlroy.

Wozniacki announced her engagement to the former World No 1 golfer on New Year's Eve. And now she has hinted at wanting to be a young mother.

"I want to be a relatively young mother, and I do not see it as being too far in the future," Wozniacki told the publication.

"Therefore I have no dream to make my mark. Instead, I enjoy economic freedom my hard work has given me.

It means I can give my children the best start in life by being there 100 per cent for them," added the World No 14.

Previous reports have suggested that the couple could marry sometime later this year.
