“Hi guys, a quick update. I just have some not so great news. I hurt my forearm/elbow while playing in Canada 2 weeks ago and obviously, didn’t realize how bad it was until I got my scans yesterday and unfortunately I have infact torn a little bit of my tendon,” Mirza wrote on Instagram.
“I will be out for weeks and have pulled out of US Open. This isn’t ideal and it’s terrible timing and it will change some of my retirement plans but I will keep you posted,” she added.
Sania Mirza is India’s most successful tennis star. Former world number 1 has been crowned champions of Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open once each in the women’s doubles event. Along with that, she has also won Australian Open, the French Open and the US Open once each in the mixed doubles event.
