Serena Williams skips Australian Open

US tennis star, Serena Williams, will not compete at the Australian Open in January on the advice of doctors, organisers announced on Wednesday.

The seven-time winner, 40, is still one behind the all-time record of grand slam tournament victories with 23.

She said, “While this is never an easy decision to make, I am not where I need to be physically to compete.

“Melbourne is one of my favorite cities to visit and I look forward to playing at the AO every year.

“I will miss seeing the fans, but am excited to return and compete at my highest level.”
