"It feels a little unfair, but life's unfair": Tomljanovic admits Australian Open heartbreak is 'worst timing ever' after withdrawal

One of the best Australian tennis players, Ajla Tomljanovic was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open due to a knee injury that made it impossible for her to play.

Tomljanovic has become a steady performer in the past two years reaching the second week of major events regularly. She was hoping to continue that back home but was unable to do so due to a knee injury that forced her to withdraw from the event. She announced it on social media writing:

"If you ask me, this is probably the worst timing ever. I'm sure I would have found and said that even if it happened in six months it would have been the worst thing ever."

She further wrote:

"If I'm taking a 15-second pity party, this shouldn't have happened now. It's the time when I'm feeling my best self in every way and I'm coming into a slam truly feeling like I deserve to be even a contender. I mean, I feel that way. I'm not coming out here and faking that.So, in a way, am I going to have to start from scratch? Probably not. It feels a little unfair, but life's unfair. Part of our job, injuries will happen."
