Former world number one Venus Williams has withdrawn from next year’s ASB Classic in Auckland, New Zealand where she would make her first appearance in a tournament since August.

Venus has played at a recent exhibition in Milan and has played only four tournaments in the 2011 season but is still recovering from Sjogren’s syndrome, which causes joint pain and fatigue.

Organizer’s of the event have stated that she is just not ready to come back to the pro circuit. Venus, who is now 31 does have the Australian Open ahead of her coming up on January 16th, so we are all hoping Venus will make her appearance there and hopefully do well in her comeback.
