World No. 2 Kim Clijsters announced Tuesday to be out for four to six weeks due to shoulder and wrist injuries.

The sidelining will force the reigning Australian Open champion to skip the Fed Cup semifinal against the Czech Republic later this month and the Madrid WTA tournament slated on April 30 to May 8.

"I think this is a great pity," the 27-year-old Clijsters told her website. "The Fed Cup is something I was really looking forward to."

"But I felt that something was out of the ordinary," she added. "There were too many minor ailments, one after the other.

The four-time Grand Slam winner hopes to be fit to return for the Rome tournament on May 9, two weeks before the French Open where she was runner-up in 2001 and 2003.
