When Caroline Wozniacki retired at the 2020 Australian Open, she slowed down a lot. For the first time in over 20 years, her time was her own. So what did she do with it? Start filming a physically challenging show for Discovery Channel Denmark called "Undressed to the Top with the Wozniacki Family".
With airing wrapped up, she finally has gotten to show off photos from the experience which culminated in a seven0day hike up Mount Kilimanjaro.
Though the show has only aired in Danish so far, the gist is simple enough.
"Basically the whole premise of the show is we meet three gurus, Ice Man [Wim] Hoff, Master Shifu and also Stig Severinsen," Woznaicki said on the TENNIS.com Podcast. "They teach us a few things that we're supposed to take with us when we’re climbing Kilimanjaro and we're trying to reach the top of Kilimanjaro with very little clothes on."
The first part was filmed in the snow-capped mountains of Poland followed by the Wozniacki/Lee troop relocating to warmer climates for free diving in Zanzibar. The meditating lessons with Shaolin monks and two days in the Maasai village took place in Tanzania before they headed up Mount Kilimanjaro.
The Maasai people are known to be some of the most fearsome spear hunters and warriors. They are also super tall and can easily jump a 41 inch vertical with no shoes on and no warm ups. We got to spend 2 days at their village, where we learned about their culture, learned how to throw a spear, sat around the fire and sang songs and danced. We played soccer with the kids and gave them little presents. Truly a special once in a lifetime experience.
Wozniacki was joined by her husband David Lee, her father Piotr, her mother Anna, her brother and Lee's mother Susan.
We woke up early in the morning, sunrise was hitting Mount Kilimanjaro in a perfect light, and the excitement for our 7 day trip up the highest free standing mountain in the world was at an all time high! We met our whole team at the front of Lemosho gate, weighed in our luggage, (clothes, food, tents, etc) and then it was time to start our trip, with the first two days going thru the rain forrest!
