Injury forces top seed Caroline Wozniacki out of Citi Open

Caroline Wozniacki disappointed

Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki won’t feature at the Citi Open due to injury.

The top seed was forced to pull out of the Washington event just a few hours before her first-round match due to a right leg injury.

“It’s just something that has been nagging for a little while,” Wozniacki said. 2Hopefully it will be fine.”

World No 2 Wozniacki, who was hoping to play on the WTA Tour for the first time since Wimbledon, was set to play Ukrainian qualifier Anhelina Kalinina in the evening session on Tuesday and was replaced by Belgian lucky loser Ysaline Bonaventure in the draw.

The match between Kalinina and Bonaventure had to be pushed back to Wednesday, though, due to rain.
