Sania Mirza Withdraws From US Open 2022 Due To Injury Negligence
India’s veteran tennis player Sania Mirza has withdrawn from the US Open 2022 due to a tendon injury. She had this injury two weeks ago in Canada but she neglected it.
The Indian veteran tennis player Sania Mirza pulled out of the US Open 2022 on Tuesday because of a tendon injury in her forearm and shared about some change in her retirement plans.
The 35-year-old sustained the injury earlier this month while competing in the Canadian Open. Before playing in the women’s doubles semifinals in Toronto with partner Madison Keys, she participated in the Cincinnati Open last week.
Sania had previously stated that 2022 would be her final year of competitive tennis, but the six-time Grand Slam champion made a hint that she would reconsider her decision in light of recent events.

Sania Mirza informed about her injury through Instagram post,
“I have some not-so-great news. I hurt my forearm/elbow while playing in Canada two weeks ago and obviously didn’t realize how bad it was until I got my scans yesterday. I have torn a little bit of my tendon.”
“I will be out for a (few) weeks and have pulled out of the US Open. This isn’t ideal, and it’s terrible timing. It will change some of my retirement plans, but I will keep you all posted,” she added.
