Angelique Kerber said she needed to nurse her injured knee after a semi-final defeat at the Dubai Tennis Championships on Friday ended her chances of reclaiming the world number one ranking.Had Kerber won the tournament, she would have retaken the world number one spot she held for four months after winning the US Open in September, until Serena Williams wrestled it back in claiming Australian Open glory last month.Kerber, winner of two Grand Slams in 2016, lost for the third time in a row to Svitolina, the Ukrainian world number 13 .Denmark's former world number one Wozniacki, currently 15th, took just 90 minutes to win her semi-final.
