Pliskova out of Open

World No. 4 Karolina Pliskova has withdrawn from next month’s Australian Open with a hand injury sustained in training, the player said yesterday in a statement released by tournament organizers. The 29-year-old reached the semifinals in Melbourne in 2019, losing to eventual champion Naomi Osaka. She reached the final at Wimbledon this year before a run to the quarterfinals of the US Open. “Unfortunately, I hurt my right hand in practice yesterday and I won’t be able to play in Adelaide, Sydney and (the) Australian Open next year,” she said. Pliskova is the latest high-profile player to miss the major, with Grand Slam champions Serena Williams, Bianca Andreescu and Roger Federer also absent. The Australian Open begins on January 17.
