Garbiñe Muguruza Thigh Injury Haunts Her in Madrid.
The former top seed had been training in Madrid for the last week in an effort to get back to full fitness, but said in a statement she’s just not physically fit to participate.
“This is the harshest of the news and the most agonizing decision any player has to make,” Muguruza said. “We have been training hard to recuperate and be able to get to the tournament well, I came a week before time to acclimatise because I was looking ahead to doing well this year in Madrid, at my home and before my native audience.
“But the pain is back and the last MRI has established that I have not recuperated 100% to play and the medical advice is to stop.”
The 10th-seeded Spaniard was slated to face American Sloane Stephens in an initial-round clash of Grand Slam winners.
The 27-year-old Muguruza was in a commanding position against Yulia Putintseva 6-0, 2-2 in the Charleston round of 16 prior to this month when she was compelled to retire from the match after suffering the leg injury. Muguruza has not competed since and did not reveal when she may be ready to return.
