Amanda Anisimova has pulled out Mubadala World Tennis Championship. Ajla Tomljanovic will take Anisimova’s spot, and play Maria Sharapova on December 19th.
“It’s really disappointing to have to withdraw from the Mubadala World Tennis Championship,” Anisimova said. “I was looking forward so much to coming to Abu Dhabi and I hope to make the trip in the future.”
Anisimova has been working Carlos Rodriguez in the off-season. Rodriguez coached Justine Henin throughout her career. The partnership comes as Anisimova hopes to have a good 2020, after a break through year in 2019.
