Retired Meusburger returns for Australian Open
VIENNA (AP) Austrian tennis player Yvonne Meusburger is coming out of retirement to play one more tournament - the Australian Open in January.
Meusburger, who ended her career in August following a first-round defeat by Karolina Pliskova at the U.S. Open, tells the Austria Press Agency, ''I will play there ... because I also played my first Grand Slam in Australia (in 2006). It's a nice farewell.''
The 31-year-old Meusburger reached a career-high 37th this year and is still Austria's highest-ranked female player in 86th place.
Meusburger, who won her sole WTA title at the Gastein Ladies in Austria last year, reached the third round of the 2014 Australian Open for her best career Grand Slam result.
