At last, Wozniacki had become the Grand Slam champion she always dreamed of becoming and she is clearly intent on savouring that moment.

The new world No 1 continued her celebrations on Sunday by posing for pictures with the trophy on a boat in the Royal Botanical Gardens in Melbourne.

She also smiled for snaps as she popped some champagne and kissed the trophy, displaying just how much this victory means to her.

After capturing the title she admitted doubts had crept in but she has now finally found solace.

‘I’m just proud I will never hear “you were No 1 but never won a Grand Slam” again,’ said the Dane, who less than 18 months ago had seen her ranking fall to 74 after various ailments.

‘I think you always, at certain points, especially when you start having injuries and stuff, you start maybe doubting if you’re ever going to be 100 per cent healthy for longer periods of time.

‘But I think for a year and a half, I’ve proved that I can beat anyone out there on court.’
