Jabeur just about prevailed and it was left for Wozniacki to take the mic to celebrate a trophy-laden career of 30 titles, including her maiden major at the Australian Open two years ago.
Wozniacki, who had announced her retirement from Tennis after this year's Australian Open, lost 7-5, 3-6, 7-5.
"I think it was only fitting that my last match would be a three-setter, a grinder and that I would finish my career with a forehand error", Wozniacki said jokingly while holding back tears.
Wozniacki said late past year that she would retire from the game after the Australian Open in order to spend more time with her family and because she has been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2018.
"I usually don't cry, so sorry, but these are the special memories that I will always cherish", said the former world number one.
"But I'm prepared for the next chapter, prepared for what is to come".
Jabeur was given a rapturous reception by the Melbourne Arena audience and embraced Wozniacki, which made her debut in 2005.

Her plans include going skiing with her family, a couple of "girls trips" and a belated honeymoon with her husband David, the former NBA basketball star who she married in June previous year.
Wozniacki also wants to raise awareness about rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune condition that can cause pain and swelling in the wrist and other joints.
"Those are the things I've been working on my whole career".
Wozniacki battled to an excellent win over fast-rising teenager Dayana Yastremska in the second round and surely had her sights set on a fourth-round clash with great friend Serena Williams.
Spanish legend Rafael Nadal also congratulated the Danish tennis star, labelling her career as "amazing". "Oh, my God. I'm going to miss her".
When questioned about what she wanted her legacy to be, Wozniacki said she wanted people to remember her fighting qualities and never say die attitude.
"If you have a dream and you go for it and work hard, anything is possible".
"The main thing I've learned is no matter where you're from, no matter what colour of your skin, no matter if you're tall or short, big or small, doesn't matter", said the Dane.
