Caroline Wozniacki should take a break from tennis, says Pierce

Former player Mary Pierce said that Caroline Wozniacki should not compete for some time in order to heal from the rheumatoid arthritis she has been dealing with since last year.

"I would suggest Caroline take a break from tennis.

At the moment it's not that good for the health, so it's better she gets back to practice and then she gains her health again. In 2001 I was in a similar situation as Caroline, I was off for seven months.

It took a lot of time to come back to my same game level, but four years after I played the French Open and US Open finals", said Pierce.

In a press conference in Paris, Wozniacki was asked if she plans to watch the Liverpool vs Tottenham Champions League final live:

"You know what? I actually haven't thought about that yet. Most likely I'll watch it at home, but I'll definitely be supporting them."

Meanwhile speaking of Simona Halep, Mats Wilander said: "I liked how she faced the last set against Alja Tomljanovic.

Simona is a top player, she can do alone herself even Without Darren Cahill. I do not see any weakness in Simona's game.

It seems she is hitting the forehand harder and she seems no longer to be frustrated on court.

From my point of view, you learn and evolve as a player. She is improving even more. But that does not necessarily mean you will win all the tournaments."

Wilander would like to coach Halep:

"It would be interesting to be with her, sharing my thoughts with her and learn from her. I think coaches can learn more from players and not the contrary. I would like to be in this situation.

But I am not a coach. I work for Eurosport. I like commenting matches, analyzing. I love tennis."
