Should The Australian Open Change the Surface Due to Risk of Injuries?

It's the slam that seems to produce the most injuries probably due to the sticky plexicushion surface. It's the first slam of the year and already so many mishaps (eg. Serena's ankle, Na falling twice and hitting her head). Players shouldn't be injured left and right this early in the calendar year. It makes more sense to see it happening towards the end of the year due to fatigue or wear and tear. At this point, they need to consider player's safety first. What should they change it to, and who would it benefit more if they do change it?
