Laura Robson has withdrawn from next week's ASB Classic in New Zealand with a wrist injury.

The 19-year-old had travelled to Auckland before deciding to pull out after a niggle in her left hand.

Tournament director Karl Budge alleviated any fears that the British No. 1 could miss the Australian Open, which starts on January 13.

He said: "[Robson] told me that she's about 95% and needs a couple of extra days."
