Julia Goerges withdrew from the Sydney International just hours after defeating Caroline Wozniacki in the WTA Auckland Classic final Sunday, joining a growing list of injury concerns for star players at the Australian Open.

Organisers of the Sydney tournament, a warm-up for the first Grand Slam of the year, said the 29-year-old had pulled out with a right knee injury.

Julia Goerges beat Caroline Wozniacki 6-4, 7-6 in the final of the WTA Tour's ASB Classic, a day after Wozniacki rose to the No. 2 world ranking.

Georges won her last two tournaments of 2017 and extended her winning streak to 14 matches when she claimed the Auckland singles title for the first time at her ninth attempt, and after two previous finals appearances.

"It's not about only winning here but it's about my consistency in the last weeks and months," Goerges said. "That's just making me proud and I'm just enjoying every moment of it."

Azarenka wins Generali Ladies title in Linz


Azarenka wins Generali Ladies title in Linz

Victoria Azarenka defeated Julia Goerges 6-3, 6-4 to win the 2012 Generali Ladies Linz title.

Azarenka broke Goerges in the opening game and again at 5-3 to take the first set.

Vika won 12 consecutive points early in the second set to help build a 5-0 lead.

Goerges earned and converted her first break point when Azarenka was serving for the match at 5-1. She broke Azarenka again to make it 5-4.

"At 5-0 it felt like such a comfortable lead. I think I won seven games in a row at that point. But then Julia just went for her shots, and I kind of misjudged the situation," Azarenka said. "I felt like the match was already in my hands, but Julia is such an unpredictable player, and the momentum can turn around really quickly with her, and it did. I wasn't really expecting to have such a change."

Ivanovic beats Kuznetsova at Italian Open, Kerber and Goerges also winners

Ivanovic beats Kuznetsova at Italian Open, Kerber and Goerges also winners

Ana Ivanovic beat Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-4, 6-3 to advance to the second round at the Italian Open 2012 in Rome.

"It was tough out there today, but it was the same for both of us" said Ivanovic. "I just tried to move and to adjust and really tried to look at the ball and move forward. It was difficult at times and the gusts of wind would come out of nowhere, but it was a good match."

Ivanovic is approaching the top 10 again and she attributes part of her turnaround to her coach, Nigel Sears.

"He is very calm and I am a perfectionist and sometimes I try to do too much at the same time, and so he is very reasonable when he comes on to the court ... so this helps me to calm down a lot," Ivanovic said.

Stephens upsets Goerges at the WTA San Diego Open 2011

Stephens upsets Goerges at the WTA San Diego Open 2011

Sloane Stephens supset Julia Goerges 6-3, 7-5 in the second round of the WTA San Diego Open.

Stephens, ranked 131, will next face Tamira Paszek, who advanced after Maria Kirilenko withdrew before their match due to a left hip injury.

The American won back-to-back matches for the first time in her career at the WTA level after beating Zhang Shuai in the first round.

"I had nothing to lose but I wasn't expecting a win," Stephens said. "She played well with a few mistakes. She's still an awesome player, she's not just any girl.

"She didn't have her greatest day and maybe I did. I'm happy to take this victory."

The win allowed her to laugh at the set point she gave away when Goerges hit a ball long, but Stephens inexplicably allowed the ball to hit her in the back. Goerges called it “the funny point.”

“That was so embarrassing. I don’t know what happened,” Stephen said. “I was watching it, I tried to get out of the way … That’s never really ever happened to me before. It was embarrassing, it was funny, it was childish, something an 18-year-old would do.”

Goerges said that her season's goal is to improve her consistency.

"I've been down and up and now maybe a bit down. There are a lot of good young players out there," said the German. "I need to stay consistently at my level. I'm going back to the practice courts."
