“Rolled my ankle during practice today, very sad to miss Fed Cup and Istanbul, but I’ll be back soon,” the 25-year-old Dane said on Twitter on Friday.

Wozniacki, now down at 24th in the rankings after a disappointing showing at Indian Wells and Miami, was scheduled to play for her country in the Fed Cup Group II seven team round-robin tournament next weekend in Cairo.

She won the Istanbul title in 2014.
