Caroline Wozniacki’s injury strikes again, French Open in doubt


Caroline WozniackiTop seed Caroline Wozniacki was forced to leave her Polsat Warsaw Open quarterfinal against Zheng Jie because of the right ankle injury sustained in Charleston in April which has been bothering her ever since. The world No.3 Wozniacki lost the first set 6-3 and then retired, increasing Zheng’s record in their career meetings to 3-1.

Even though Wozniacki said a little more than a week ago that she expected to be ready for the French Open, the injury is still causing her pain and her French Open appearance is very uncertain (the tournament starts in three days).

Here’s the Dane’s statement after the loss to the 26th-ranked Zheng.

I felt some pain from the beginning of the match today. I spoke to the physio and she said it would only get worse. I’m really sad. I wanted to win this match. I wanted to win the whole tournament. But health is the most important thing, and I didn’t want to risk having a worse injury.” (source: Sony Ericsson WTA Tour, photo: Stephane Martinache)


  1. Thank you Marija
    And im really disappointed about this…
    Wozniacki: “At Roland Garros I’ll wear the same dress as now. But for US Open something really spectacular is being prepared. A black thight-fitting dress. It’ll be something special!”
    Its unbelieveable…

  2. Larry, has it already been confirmed that she will play at all? I mean, the last thing I read was that she is waiting for a doctor to consult her.

  3. I would be surprise if she didn’t play, after all The Big Stuffed Bunny likes to play as many tournaments as she can. I’m sorry Ms. Marija but I find it funny doubting The Big Stuffed Bunny participation on a Grand Slam no less, even if she was on crutches she would still find a way to play. 😛 The thirst to play as many tournaments as possible will make her not missed RG. Why did she play the Warsaw tournament in the first place? Was it to prove her Polish ethnicity? No player should play a tournament before a slam IMO, specially when they are injured.

    Her official website has a new look.

    Sunday evening in L.A. (7:22 PM)No news that she is planning to withdraw from RG 10.
