Aleksandra Wozniak Forced to Delay the Start of 2011 Season

Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak (Blainville, QC) will be relieved to see this calendar year end as the 23-year-old, who had been preparing for the 2011 season since November 15, has encountered yet another health issue which has put a stop to her training for the next few weeks. This latest setback will force Wozniak to miss the first three tournaments of her 2011 campaign, including the Australian Open. She will now review her plans for 2011 with the Tennis Canada coaching staff.

"One thing is for sure, my 2010 season was a trying and challenging one right to the end, " said Wozniak. "I am a tennis player, the sport is my passion and I am at my best on a tennis court so I am very anxious to get back once and for all in full health. The good news is that my training was going well and I am confident that I will be able to return at my best once I am completely healthy again."

Wozniak was forced to put an end to her 2010 season after the U.S. Open because of forearm tendinitis, an injury which hampered her throughout the summer. She is currently ranked no. 126 on the WTA Tour world rankings. In 2008, she became the highest ranked Quebecer in history when she achieved a world no. 21 ranking.
