World no.1 Iga Swiatek has been sensational this year as she won six consecutive tournaments, including the French Open title recently. Earlier, she showed her dominant display in the French Open and won the final pretty easily. Notably, she defeated the American Coco Gauff in the final to win her second Grand Slam title.
After a successful clay-court season, the Pol was looking forward to dominating the grass court as well. Unfortunately, Swiatek suffered an injury setback that could jeopardize her participation in Wimbledon 2022.
Iga Swiatek withdraws from the Berlin Open due to injury
Earlier, the Polish player took to Twitter and announced that she has been feeling discomfort in her shoulder. As a result, she will miss the grass court event of the season in Berlin. “Due to a recurrent discomfort I am feeling in my shoulder, unfortunately I need to withdraw from the bett1open in Berlin. I’m sorry I will not be able to play there. I will focus on recovery and rest in order to be ready for Wimbledon,” Swiatek wrote on Twitter.
