Wozniacki’s Thoughts On The Award
"Thank you for this award," Wozniacki said from the Huajin Securities WTA Elite Trophy Zhuhai. "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."
