Brisbane:

Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki on Sunday withdrew from the Brisbane International tennis tournament after succumbing to a shoulder injury.

The former world number one hurt her shoulder during training and decided to pull out of Brisbane to avoid the risk of further damage.

Wozniacki said she was confident she would be able to play in Sydney next week ahead of the Australian Open in Melbourne, the first major of the season.

"There is nothing wrong with the ligaments or with the tendons," she said.

"So that's very positive. They just said to take it easy over the next few days.

"I'm fine doing some things on the court as well, which is great," she added. "It's improving every day, so a few more days and I should be ready.

"I just feel like for me it's more important that I really get 100 percent and make sure that it doesn't get worse.

"I thought the right decision for me was to withdraw from here."
