  • 2017 Australian Open- Day 13

Novak Djokovic is finally set to return to action next week after six months out with an elbow injury and will then decide whether to take part in the January 15-28 Australian Open.

The 23-time Grand Slam victor played her first match since giving birth at the World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi on December 30, losing her exhibition match to reigning French Open Champion Jelena Ostapenko. This was her 23rd Grand Slam singles title, surpassing Steffi Graf's Open Era record of 22. She won in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2015 and 2017.

Williams past year beat older sister Venus in the final.

Serena also said that she was disappointed to withdraw but looked forward to returning in the future.

Fans of tennis superstar Serena Williams were gearing up for her big comeback to the sport later this month, but they're going to have to wait a bit longer.

The defending champion said in a statement on Friday that she was "not where I personally want to be".

"I've been in constant contact with Serena and her team and know this is why she has pushed it and pushed it until the eleventh hour to make her final decision". Organizers later announced that French Open semifinalist Timea Bacsinszky had also withdrawn after failing to recover in time following surgery on her right hand in September.

Serena will lose the 2,000 points earned winning last year's final over her sister Venus, which means she won't have any WTA ranking point by January 29.
