Indian tennis star Sania Mirza on Tuesday has pulled out of the upcoming U.S Open following an elbow injury she picked up during the National Bank Open in Canada two weeks ago.
The ace tennis player posted a story on Instagram confirming the same.
The 35-year-old in January announced that she would be retiring at the end of the 2022 season. After reaching the semi-finals of the women’s doubles in Toronto alongside partner Madison Keys, Mirza also played at last week’s Cincinnati Open.
“Hi guys, a quick update. I just have some not so great news. I hurt my forearm/elbow while playing in Canada 2 weeks ago and obviously, didn’t realize how bad it was until I got my scans yesterday and unfortunately I have infact torn a little bit of my tendon,” Mirza wrote on Instagram.
“I will be out for weeks and have pulled out of US Open. This isn’t ideal and it’s terrible timing and it will change some of my retirement plans but I will keep you posted,” she added.
