Serena Williams Has Withdrawn From The Australian Open

Serena Williams and her team have decided that she is not ready to compete in the Australian Open.

In a statement on snapshot, Serena Williams shared that she is not yet ready, but will be back.

“After competing in Abu Dhabi I realized that although I am super close, I’m not where I personally want to be,” Williams said.

“My coach and team always said ‘only go to tournaments when you are prepared to go all the way’. I can compete – but I don’t want to just compete, I want to do far better than that and to do so, I will need a little more time.

“With that being said, and even though I am disappointed about it, I’ve decided not to compete in the Australian Open this year.

“The memory of last year’s Open is one that I will carry with me, and Olympia and I look forward to coming back again.

“I appreciate the support and understanding of my fans and everyone at the Australian Open.”
