We are just a couple of days before the first grand slam of the season Australian Open kicks off, and we got two unexpected cancellations from WTA players who were at the top of the rankings.
The first cancelation came from Ajla Tomljanovic, the Australian player, who did not manage to recover from the injury she recently suffered, so she decided to withdraw.
“It absolutely pains me to have to write this message, but unfortunately, I won’t be able to compete at this year’s Australian Open. I’ve done absolutely everything in my power to get healthy but just ran out of time to heal and be 100 percent ready to compete at a high level, “ she wrote on her Instagram feed.
However, sadly, this was not the only cancelation, as Spanish player Paula Badosa also withdrew due to an injury. She tweeted, “Bad news… During the quarterfinal match in Adelaide, I hurt myself, and after receiving the results, I will have to be out for a few weeks.
“Sad to miss Australian Open this year, really going to miss it. I will do everything I can to return as soon as possible.”
