Iga SwiAtek will not take part in the Miami Open and thus will not defend the title won there last year. The tennis player is struggling with a rib injury that has already bothered her during Indian Wells, where she also failed to defend last year’s triumph. The injury forces the Polish woman to temporarily withdraw from the competition.
Health is the most important – wrote Iga Swiatek in a statement informing about her withdrawal from the Miami Open. And she’s right. Especially since the rib injury she refers to is certainly not pleasant.
The first signs that Iga was struggling with the injury appeared in the Indian Wells semi-final, where she was not herself and was defeated in sets. After the defeat, she wrote that she was suffering from a rib injury and needed to consult a doctor. Taking a few days off didn’t help. Swiatek withdraws from the Miami Open.
