Caroline Wozniacki: Heading to Sydney

Former champion Li and Wozniacki have both confirmed they will play at the Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre from January 6-11.

Li, the current world number seven, said: "Two years ago I won the Sydney title and it gave me a lot of confidence leading into Melbourne (where she reached the Australian Open final).

"I've been there the last two years and played very well so I am really looking forward to coming back again."

Former world number one Wozniacki will also play at the WTA event, a tournament which has regularly attracted the world's best players.

Home hope Sam Stosur had already signed up to compete and more big names are likely to follow.

Tournament director Craig Watson said: "Li Na has performed exceptionally well in Sydney the last two years giving Sydney tennis fans and the local Chinese community who come and support her plenty of great tennis action to cheer on.

"Caroline is one of the most successful players on the women's tour with 20 WTA titles to her name. I am looking forward to having the popular world number 10 return to Sydney for the fourth time."
