Wozniacki hurts her wrist in a loss to Radwanska, and may drop out of the #1 position.

Picture

Caroline Wozniacki suffered a wrist injury just five days before the start of the Australian Open as she lost to Agnieszka Radwanska in the quarter-finals of the Sydney International. The top seed had her left wrist strapped during the final set of her 3-6 7-5 6-2 defeat and could now lose her number one ranking to Czech player Petra Kvitova before the first grand slam of the year gets under way. The Dane is hoping to end her wait for a first Grand Slam trophy of her career in Melbourne and believes she will be fit for the start of the tournament.

“I hope it’s not serious “I could feel it today, especially in the third set. I’m going to go get it checked out tomorrow and hopefully it’s okay. Let’s just hope for the best. “I should be completely fine for Australian Open. I started feeling it more and more during the match.”

The injury seemed to affect Wozniacki’s serving as she was broken eight times, winning fewer than 50 per cent of points on both her first and second serves as she lost in two hours 38 minutes. Poland’s Radwanska will next face third seed Victoria Azarenka, who was pushed hard by Marion Bartoli before claiming a 7-5 6-4 win. It was a real slog for the Belorussian, who needed four breaks in the first set and three in the second to get the job done in nearly two and a half hours.

The other semi-final will be between second seed Petra Kvitova and fourth seed Li Na. Kvitova was in irresistible form as she breezed past Daniela Hantuchova 6-0 6-4 in a little over an hour, while Li beat Lucie Safarova 6-2 7-6 (7/3).
