Garbine Muguruza still battling with injury, out of Rogers Cup

Two-time Grand Slam winner Garbine Muguruza’s injury woes are still not over.

The Spaniard was due to play Anastasija Sevastova in the second round of the Rogers Cup in Montreal, but she withdrew on Tuesday as she is still recovering from an arm problem.

“Unfortunately I am still recovering from my arm injury from last week,” Muguruza said in a statement.

“I did everything I could to try and play here but unfortunately I am not ready and need a little bit more time. I will miss playing here and look forward to coming back to Montreal in the future.”

The former world No 1, whose only WTA Tour title success this year came at the Monterrey Open in Mexico, hasn’t played any competitive tennis since she lost in the second round at Wimbledon as she was also a late withdrawal from last week’s Silicon Valley Classic.

However, she is hopeful of making her return at the Western and Southern Open in Cinainatti next week where she is the defending champion.
