World unit Iga Swiatek resigned from the Madrid Open due to a right shoulder injury, the Women’s Tennis Association said on Wednesday. The 20-year-old Polish girl pulls the 23-match winning streak and on Sunday won her fourth title in a row when she defeated Belarus Aryna Sabalenko in the final of the Stuttgart Open.
“After intense recent weeks and winning four titles in a row, it’s time to take care of my hand, which is tired since the Miami Open, and I haven’t had a chance to handle it properly,” Swiatek said on Twitter. I need a break from playing so hard to treat my hand well, so unfortunately I have to withdraw. “
Swiatek, who won her first grand slam title at the French Open in 2020, was to begin her campaign against the qualifier at the WTA 1000 clay event in Madrid, whose main move begins on Thursday.
In front of Stuttgart, Swiatek won the WTA 1000 in Doha, Indian Wells and Miami and also led Poland to the November final of the Billie Jean King Cup with two singles wins in a qualifying round against Romania this month. Swiatek intends to return to the Italian Open, which will take place in Rome from 9 to 15 May, before the Roland Garros clay grand slam tournament begins on 22 May. My body needs a break. I will have some time to prepare for Rome and Paris, “she added.
