Leylah Fernandez has withdrawn from the Citi Open, so she won’t be making her comeback in Washington. The 19-year-old Fernandez has been sidelined since suffering a Grade 3 stress fracture in the quarterfinal loss to Martina Trevisan at the French Open.
Fernandez planned to return in Washington after missing the full grass season. Sadly, Fernandez still does not feel ready to play again, therefore she will not be making her Washington debut the following week.
Update on Washington
Fernandez is OUT.
The Entry List Updates Women account for Saville will be updated on July 26.
Fernandez was supposed to compete against Cori Gauff in an exhibition game this past weekend in Atlanta.
Sadly, that match also didn’t take place. ” Hello, men. Therefore, I wanted to quickly update you. I’m following my doctor’s advice and won’t be able to compete for the upcoming week while my foot is healing.
I’m therefore extremely sorry to inform you that I will not be in Atlanta. Even though it breaks my heart, I want to wish Coco well and I hope that everyone at the competition, including the participants and spectators, has a nice time.
Bye. I’ll see you later,” Fernandez added.
Fernandez worsened her injury by refusing to stop working.
Despite the fact that Fernandez and Trevisan were visibly in pain and discomfort, Fernandez refused to end the contest. The scan results were negative after the match, and Fernandez declared she would be sidelined for the whole grass season.
Fernandez admitted she experienced a “pinch” during her third match at the French Open. Fernandez wasn’t really paying attention to it at first, but as the competition went on, the discomfort intensified and he recognized it was a significant problem.
“It hurt really much. It started as a pinch and eventually became into a severe pain. “It was difficult to put my foot down, and after that, it was difficult to walk normally,” said Fernandez. The National Bank Open in Toronto, which begins on August 8, is now Fernandez’s most likely return date.
