It is reported that after the Korean Open, Liu Shiwen returned to Beijing for examination because she felt discomfort in her waist. After consultation with Chinese and foreign medical experts from the Ministry of Safeguards, she suggested that she withdraw from the Australian Open and take an active rest and recovery. The Association adopts medical expertsopinions for the protection of athletes.
Due to Liu Shiwens temporary withdrawal, in the Australian Open, only Xu Xin was left in the national table tennis mixed doubles group, so no one was involved in the mixed doubles. Ding Ning, Liu Shiwens female doubles partner, gave up the womens doubles and only participated in the womens singles competition.
In addition, Liu Shiwen hopes to be back in the T2 League after the Australian Open, but the specific recovery time also needs to be determined by medical experts after consultation and evaluation.
