Due to injury, Belinda Bencic will be absent from Madrid and Rome.
Due to a hip ailment, Belinda Bencic withdrew from the forthcoming WTA 1000 tournaments in Madrid and Rome. Bencic has been coping with a hip issue since March. In order to solve the problem and maybe be fully prepared for the French Open, Bencic has now chosen to take a brief vacation.
“I have some hip pain, which I also had during the US swing, and I need to take a little time off and rehabilitate in order to be fully recovered for Roland Garros. I’ll be much missed in both tournaments, but I’ll be back in a few weeks. I can’t wait to compete again and keep up my excellent form, Bencic wrote.
Bencic is mostly focused on getting ready for the French Open.
The 26-year-old Bencic aspires to win a Grand Slam title soon.
Bencic should not have skipped Madrid or Rome because her top aim is to be completely prepared for the French Open. But there is a problem: Bencic will have only participated in one clay tournament before to the French Open, the second Grand Slam of the year.
Bencic began her clay season in Charleston at the beginning of April. Bencic, the defending winner in Charleston, narrowly missed claiming back-to-back victories in the competition. After defeating Ons Jabeur in the Charleston final, Bencic claimed her maiden clay title the previous year.
Bencic lost to Jabeur in the Charleston championship game this year. Despite having a hip issue, Bencic was still able to make a deep Charleston. Bencic is anticipated to compete in her sixth French Open main draw in late May.
Bencic hasn’t had much success at Roland Garros thus far in her career. Bencic’s performances in the third round of the French Open in 2019 and 2022 have been his greatest performances in the competition. How well Bencic does at the French Open this year remains to be seen.
