Sweden's Thomas Johansson is uncertain if he will be fit in time to defend his Australian Open title in January next year as he is struggling with a knee injury.

"The plan is for me to play, but it's not 100 percent certain," Johansson told Swedish news agency TT on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old, who secured the first Swedish Grand Slam win in almost a decade in Melbourne early this year, has struggled with the injury for the last six months and has not trained since replacing Andre Agassi in the last group stage game at the Masters in Shanghai in November.

"Often the problems come after the match, the knee feels completely stiff," said Johansson, who has already missed the U.S Open this year because of a shoulder injury.

"The doctors think there is a connection between the injuries since I'm short I use my legs a lot in the serve. When the knee got bad I had to put more power into the shoulder movement."
