World No. 13 and top-ranked American John Isner has withdrawn from next week's Australian Open with a knee injury.

"I am extremely disappointed to announce that I have to withdraw from the Australian Open. I have been feeling some discomfort in my knee and have recently learned that I have a bone bruise," Isner said on Thursday.

"My doctors have told me that continuing to play on the knee could result in a more serious injury, so I have regrettably decided not to compete in Melbourne and use the time to fully recover."

The 27 year-old's best result at the Australian Open is a fourth round appearance in 2010.
