Caroline Wozniacki has withdrawn from this year’s French Open, according to the WTA.

The former world No. 1, now ranked No. 34, has a lingering right ankle injury and has not played since March in the Miami Open, where she lost in the third round to Elina Svitolina.

The 25-year-old missed both the Madrid Open and Italian Open due to a foot injury she sustained in practice in April. The Danish player previously withdrew from Denmark’s Fed Cup and later the Istanbul Cup.​

The draw for the French Open will be released Friday, with play set to begin Sunday.
