Former world number one Caroline Wozniacki has pulled out of the French Open on account of an ankle injury.

The Danish tennis player, who was dumped in the first round from the Australian Open in January, has been in poor form of late and has slipped to No.34 in the rankings.

 


Last month, another ankle injury had forced the 25-year-old Wozniacki out of the Istanbul Cup.

Besides Wozniacki, World No.8 Belinda Bencic also withdrew from Roland Garros with a lower back injury, according to WTA's Twitter feed.

The 19-year-old Bencic has lost in the first round at four of her last five tournaments.
