The support has been flooding in for Caroline Wozniacki as the tennis star prepares to run Sunday’s New York Marathon.

The 24-year-old lost in the semi-finals of the WTA Finals in Singapore last week, leaving her seven days to focus on preparing for the 26.2-mile race, which she is running for charity Team for Kids.

Andy Murray and Kim Clijsters were among the big names to tweet their support for the Dane ahead of the weekend’s test.

Asked about her decision to run the race, Wozniacki said: “I think you can never feel too sure in life.

“You can’t really plan ahead because you never know what’s going to happen tomorrow.

“To be honest, this half of the year I’ve been great tennis-wise, and the running and everything has definitely helped me with everything.

“It’s cleared my head, but also it’s helped me physically, and I feel stronger on the court. So it’s been a great thing for me. It’s a nice challenge.”
