SYDNEY (Reuters) - Goran Ivanisevic, who battled past a shoulder injury to win Wimbledon, will play in the season-ending Tennis Masters Cup despite a freak accident in the shower.

The Croatian, who takes daily painkillers for his damaged left shoulder, stubbed his toe in the shower of his Sydney hotel on Wednesday.

The minor but painful injury forced him to miss a practice session later that day.

Tournament officials however said Ivanisevic trained on Thursday and would not need scans of the injury.

``There's no problem, he's ready to play,'' a tournament spokesman told Reuters.

Ivanisevic has been drawn in a four-man group with top seed Gustavo Kuerten, clay court specialist Juan Carlos Ferrero and Russia's Yevgeny Kafelnikov at the season-ending event.

The second group features Australians Lleyton Hewitt and Pat Rafter, the United States' Andre Agassi and Frenchman Sebastien Grosjean.

Germany's Tommy Haas is on standby as an alternate should any players be unable to make the $3.7 million tournament's elite eight-man field.
