Petkovic withdraws from Australian Open

World number 10 Andrea Petkovic has withdrawn from the 2012 Australian Open. Petkovic has a stress fracture in her lower back, and her doctors say that it will take six to eight weeks for her to recover. She has been in pain since the season began, but says that she thought she could just play through the pain and be fine to compete in Melbourne.

Last year, the German star, seeded 30th, reached the quarterfinals, but was defeated by eventual runner-up Li Na.
