Wozniacki said: "When you come back, you have to start from scratch and it's the same for everyone. But Serena will be fine, she’s not worried.” "While Williams will be fighting to add to her remarkable haul of honors, Wozniacki, who starts her campaign in the second round against either Sam Stosur or Monica Puig, heads into the build-up towards the French Open and Wimbledon full of confidence after finally landing the first major of her career in Melbourne. The 27 year-old is breathing down current number one Simona Halep's neck, but returning to the summit isn't at the top of her wish list. Wozniacki spent 67 career weeks at number one between October 2010 and January 2012. When she reclaimed the spot after winning the Australian Open, only to lose it to Halep soon after, it eclipsed the previous longest gap between spells at the top of five years and 29 days, set by Williams between August 2003 and September 2008.

"I am just enjoying my tennis now," Wozniacki said. "I think once you go to the next Slam, the French Open, I think I'll feel differently because I'll feel less pressure and I think that will be the biggest difference to me. "I will never get the question about being number one and never winning a Slam so that's a huge plus too. "But just being able to enjoy my tennis and being healthy, I think that's the key. "I feel like there's no stress. Getting to number one soon isn't at the forefront of my mind right now. "Winning the Australian Open was my biggest achievement and something that I'm so proud of. "At that moment when I won, I became number one. So doing that was much more special than having the number one ranking now in a random regular week. "I would love to get back, but for me it's important to be there at the end of the year."
