Serena Williams was determined to defend her title at the Australian Open. But eventually she had to withdraw because she didn’t feel ready.

2 months where missing.

Serena gave birth to a wonderful baby girl just a few months ago, and she was trying to hit the court almost immediately, but she couldn’t as something happened that delayed her comeback.

It’s Serena’s coach to explain what happened during an interview with the ESPN. Patrick commented

"It's never an easy decision to skip a Grand Slam, I guess for any professional, and for sure for Serena. But I would rather say it is a wise decision. It's not an easy decision, but it's the best, wise one.

The thing is, when she gave birth, things didn't go as smooth as she expected. She had some complications. I mean, the baby was perfect, but she had some issues afterward and these medical issues delayed the moment that she could come back to practice.

I could see that those two months were missing. Those two months she could not practice after giving birth. So, I knew she was late, but with her, you never know, so we did the job, and then her idea was to do one match and see exactly where she was. But it was no surprise for me."

Serena is currently ranked no. 22 and she will lose all her points after the Australian Open. She will find her way back!
