Shvedova to miss Australian Open

Doctors have confirmed that Yaroslava Shvedova's right knee injury is serious enough to require surgery. She will be out six weeks, which means she will miss the Australian Open. Shvedova tore her meniscus during the first round of Hopman Cup competition.

Shvedova and her doubles partner, Vania King, won both Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in 2010.
