The once and future World No. 1 acknowledged as much following her 7-6 (2), 3-6, 6-4 win in the Australian Open final over current No. 1 Simona Halep, who she will supplant when the rankings come out.
After her win, an emotional Wozniacki said she had been dreaming of this moment for years. My voice is shaking. She will face No. 1-ranked Simona Halep, who scored a hard-fought 6-3, 4-6, 9-7 victory over two-time major victor Angelique Kerber.
"The body was not ready because I had so many long matches. but mentally I was ready", she said.
Wozniacki, 27, had to overcome bouts of nerves throughout the long match. Halep's serve had just been broken and she now trailed 6-5 in the third set, one game from losing. I can play against anyone. I didn't know who was going to win.
Both players battled leg complaints in the taxing two hour and 49 minute tussle, but Wozniacki found the grit to make the breakthrough in her third grand slam final. "She had actually more energy in the end".
There was certainly nothing passive about Wozniacki as she stormed into a 3-0 lead, Halep simply unable to deal with the Dane's backhand down the line.
The world number one appeared to be receiving treatment for dizziness amid hot and humid conditions on Rod Laver Arena, and she looked to be struggling badly when resuming play. That's why I can say that I'm not sad for that.
Wozniacki got out to a 3-1 lead after breaking Halep to love in the fourth game.

White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said his office is preparing for "the Schumer shutdown ". "This is the behaviour of obstructionist losers, not legislators ", the statement added.
She had not won a set in either of her previous two Grand Slam final appearances and tightened visibly serving for this one, and the set headed for a tiebreak.
So when she went up a set and a break on Kerber within an hour in the last-four on Thursday, things were really looking up for the Romanian. To set up match point, Wozniacki scurried and scuttled across the baseline, throwing back Halep's missiles however she could, including an awesome save from off the court where she delivered an amazingly angled backhand cross-court that set up a forehand victor. With so much pressure - a few hundred riding on the spin of the roulette wheel will hardly set her nerves jangling, especially with a career prize money of almost $27 million. There were tears of joy as she approached the net.
Cramping, she made a decision to stand and deliver in the next game, keeping the points short. It was an incredible match and again, yes.
What followed was a wild third set, with eight breaks of serve in 10 games.
Both had saved match points on their way to the final in what had been a brilliant final, but it was Wozniacki who grabbed the most win of all.
He has been unable to break a silverware drought thus far, with that barren run having entered a sixth year, but remains in the hunt as the 2017-18 campaign approaches the business end. To think, she had faced match point in the second round in Melbourne. Her Australian Open victory indicates that she will replace Halep as World number one on Monday.
"It is the happiest one this time because I was absent because of injury, so it was tough to come back, to get this trophy", Kunieda said, according to the tournament website.
