Top-ranked Canadian tennis player Aleksandra Wozniak has put an end to her 2010 season due to a forearm injury.

"I have tried everything and obviously there is nothing more that I can do, my injury simply needs time to heal," Wozniak told Tennis Canada. "It was a difficult decision to make to end my season this way, but in the long run it is the best one."

The Blainvile, Que., native returned to Montreal on Wednesday afternoon from the U.S. Open in New York, after her loss to Sally Peers, which ended in two straight sets.

Currently ranked 54th in the world, Wozniak admitted she had a disappointing season after previously expressing her goal to make it as one of the top 20 players in the world.

"With my results from last year I had every reason to believe that I could be a Top 20 player” Wozniak said. “But instead I had to overcome many setbacks which affected my game and my confidence."
