New York - US Open semi-finalist Caroline Wozniacki refused
to dampen speculation on Tuesday that she is on the verge of retiring from
The Danish star's father Piotr had been quoted in national
media as suggesting that his daughter was unlikely to play beyond next year.
"We have not taken any final decision, but as I
understand her, it will not be a long career," he was quoted as saying.
The 26-year-old Wozniacki refused to knock back her father's
opinion after reaching her first Grand Slam semi-final in two years.
"I think I don't want to really talk about that now.
When I feel ready to open up and say something then I will, but for now I'm
just here to play this tournament," former world number one Wozniacki said
after beating Anastasija Sevastova 6-0, 6-2 in the quarter-finals.
"Hopefully I have two more matches here. Yeah, it's
really all I'm focused on right now."
Wozniacki, whose ranking has slumped to 74 after a series of
injury setbacks this year, faces Germany's Angelique Kerber on Thursday for a
place in the US Open final.
