Former world No. 1 Jelena Jankovic’s streak of 56 straight Grand Slam main draw appearances will come to an end next month as the Serbian announced her withdrawal from the Australian Open due to a back injury.
The 32-year-old has struggled mightily with various injuries over the last two years, falling to a ranking of No. 137. She has not played since the US Open and last won a match at a WTA 125K Series in Nanchang back in July.
