The Australian Open announced that Brady would miss the event in 2022 and wished her a speedy recovery. The world No.25 American will also not play warm-up tournaments leading up to the season’s first Grand Slam.

The 26-year-old Brady joins the ever-growing list of Australian Open withdrawals, which already includes Bianca Andreescu, Serena Williams, and Karolina Pliskova.

The last tournament that Brady played was the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati in August, where she retired in the second round against Jelena Ostapenko.

The 2021 Australian Open was Brady’s first ever and so far only runner-up finish at a Grand Slam. She lost to Naomi Osaka in the final. (photo: Jimmie48)
