Caroline Wozniacki won her first title.

Caroline Wozniacki has had quite the last few months. In early November, the Danish tennis star announced her engagement to NBA player David Lee.

Wozniacki, one of the most successful women's tennis players of her generation, announced the news on Twitter with a photo of the engagement ring that Lee proposed with. Beware, the ring might make you jealous.

Wozniacki, 27, has won over $26 million in prize money being part of the WTA Tour. Just a few months after announcing her engagement, Wozniacki added another major milestone to her life.

On Saturday she took a major step in her career, literally. In a matchup of No. 1 vs. No. 2, the underdog rose to the top.

The Danish tennis star unseated World No. 1 Simona Halep to win her first Grand Slam title. With the win, Wozniacki also took over the No. 1 spot.

Wozniacki won the match 7-6 (2), 3-6, 6-4 to claim the Australian Open title. She appeared in 43 majors before finally claiming her first.

Congratulations to Wozniacki on her first major victory. And, of course, on securing a former NBA All-Star.
