Former world number one Serena Williams has withdrawn from this month’s Australian Open in Melbourne.
The 36-year-old American last week played her first match since giving birth in September.
Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam winner and the reigning Australian Open champion, said: “Although I am super close, I’m not where I want to be.”
On Thursday, Britain’s Andy Murray pulled out of the tournament, which starts on 15 January.
Williams was eight weeks pregnant with daughter Olympia when she won her seventh Australian Open title in 2017.
