The Polish world number five had been forced to complete two matches in one day on Thursday due to rain disruptions in Kuala Lumpur.

A WTA spokesman confirmed that Radwanska, who reached a career-high ranking after her tournament win in Dubai last week, had sustained an injury to her right elbow.

"I'm so sorry I can't continue. Had a great time in Malaysia and I hope to be back in future," Radwanska said as she conceded her quarter-final match-up with Taiwanese qualifier Hseih Su-Wei.

Hseih will face either Greece's Eleni Daniilidou or Australian Olivia Rogowska in the semi-finals. Daniilidou was leading their quarter-final 6-2 3-2 when rain once again caused play to be suspended.

In the other half of the draw fifth seed Petra Martic upset third seed Peng Shuai of China 4-6 7-6(7) 6-4.

The Croatian is on course for a semi-final against former world number one Jelena Jankovic, who is yet to play her quarter-final against Japan's Ayumi Morita.
