US Open 2022: Sania Mirza pulls out of US Open with tendon injury

After reaching the women’s doubles semifinals in Toronto with partner Madison Keys, Mirza also played in last week’s Cincinnati Open.

“I have some good news,” the six-time Grand Slam doubles champion wrote on his Instagram story.

“I hurt my arm/elbow playing in Canada 2 weeks ago and obviously didn’t realize how bad it was until I had my scan yesterday and unfortunately I actually tore a bit of my tendon.

“I will be out for (few) weeks and have withdrawn from the US Open. It’s not ideal and it’s a terrible time and it will change some of my retirement plans but I’ll keep you all posted.”

The 2022 US Open will begin on August 29 and end on September 11.
