Even the Australian tennis player, Tomljanovic has been sidelined for most of the 2023 season after she underwent knee surgery. She was looking to make a comeback this year. But as per reports, she is set to miss “a few weeks” of action yet again after having surgery to remove uterine fibroids. Brady’s last successful run at a major came in 2021 AO when she reached the finals of the tournament.

Since then, she has failed to find her consistency on the court. Here’s what she said recently after her surgery. “Everything went extremely well today in surgery. A massive thanks to Brian Cole and his entire team during this entire process. Wish I could look as cute as Ajla Tomljanović post-op,” Brady.

With this surgery, I will be out for quite some time as the recovery and rehab process is extensive.”
