Hong Kong - Caroline Wozniacki lamented her "shitty" recent few months on Thursday after an unlucky incident involving a bread knife brought her season to an abrupt halt.

The former world number one was trailing Svetlana Kuznetsova 7-5, 2-2 at the WTA Elite Trophy in Zhuhai, southern China, when she retired and later withdrew from the tournament.

According to the WTA Insider Twitter account, Wozniacki cut her finger badly with a bread knife from room service and was unable to hold her racquet properly, prompting the wrist injury.

"It's been a really, really frustrating, shitty second half of the year. Basically just been falling apart physically," she was quoted as saying by the WTA-linked account.

Denmark's Wozniacki, 25, won in Malaysia during a positive start to the season but highlights have become few and far between as the year unfolded.
