World No. 26 Zheng Jie, who garnered huge attention during the 2010 Australian Open, when she reached the semifinal, is not going to participate in the next year’s first Grand Slam – due to a wrist injury.

Jie sustained the injury during the US Open and it further got worse, as she continued playing in doubles. Though, she made it to semis in US Open in doubles, but her wrist injury was getting worse with each passing day. After US Open, Jie could not continue, as she had to go for the wrist surgery.

Obviously, Jie’s ranking will drop after the Australian Open, as she would lose the points, earned by reaching the semi-final, here in Melbourne.
