I don't believe it either. It was clear from the beginning that she wasn't going to play Hobart since she already was in Melbourne.
I'm still not sure why she withdrew from Brisbane. I don't think the ankle is bothering her. To me, it seems like she didn't have enough time to practise and work on certain things during the off-season. Maybe she started her off-season training late cause of the ankle.
