FOLLOWING HER return to the tennis court with an exhibition match in Abu Dhabi, Serena Williams has confirmed that she will withdraw from the Australian Open tournament, which will take place Melbourne. Murray joined Japanese star Kei Nishikori, who has been out of competitive action since last August after suffering a wrist injury during a practice session at Cincinnati and has also pulled out of the season-opening Grand Slam.
Williams is the latest big-name player to withdraw from the year's opening grand slam, which will be played from January 15-28, with Britain's Andy Murray (hip) and Japan's Kei Nishikori (wrist) having already said they would not compete. However, following that she stayed away from the game for the rest of the year before giving birth to a baby girl. Tiley further pointed out that Serena always want to give her absolute best and that she doesn't head into any event just to compete. The Serbian had earlier pulled out of Abu Dhabi exhibition and Qatar Open in Doha with elbow injury that has kept him out of action since Wimbledon previous year.
Tournament director Craig Tiley called Williams' efforts to try and be ready for a title defence at the Australian Open "Herculean" and said she transcended the sport.
After 11 months off, Williams was defeated 10-5 in a supertiebreaker after she split the first two sets with French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in an exhibition match at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship.
