US tennis legend Andre Agassi has been forced to withdraw from the World Tennis Challenge with injury.

“I’m extremely disappointed to have to pull out of the World Tennis Challenge. Unfortunately I had a snowboarding accident over the Christmas break and haven’t quite recovered enough to fly out to Australia this year. I was really looking forward to making my return to Adelaide. To all my fans I’m sorry but I hope to be back soon,” Agassi said.

“We wish him the best with his recovery and hope to welcome him back to Adelaide in the future,” General Manager World Tennis Challenge David Hearne said.
