Garbine Muguruza out of Cincinnati event, but determined ‘to get back on Tour’ and play at US Open
Two-time Grand Slam champion Garbine Muguruza will miss the Western & Southern Open due to injury, but says she “really wants to get back on Tour, and do it in New York”.
The world No 16 was expected to make her return from the enforced coronavirus hiatus at the Cincinnati event at Flushing Meadows next week, but an ankle injury has forced her to withdraw.
The Spaniard is now in a race to be fit for the US Open as the WTA Premier 5 Western & Southern Open is the final tournament before the hard-court Grand Slam.

“Following the recommendation of my medical team, I have decided to withdraw from the Western and Southern Open due to discomfort in my left ankle,” she said on social media.
“I really want to get back on Tour, and do it in New York. I know that the WTA and USTA are making a great effort to make it possible for us to play and I will work hard so that I can be there in a few days.”
