Canada's Bianca Andreescu said she is skipping this week's WTA warm-up event for the Australian Open to focus on her training for the Grand Slam.
The Grampians Trophy, a new women's competition set up to help those players prepare for the February 8-21 Grand Slam, is due to start from Wednesday.
"Following the last two weeks in quarantine, it feels so good to finally be back on the court," Andreescu said in a statement.
