Calf injury forces Sam’s withdrawal from Miami

Sam Stosur has withdrawn from the Sony Open in Miami to rehabilitate a right calf muscle injury ahead of the claycourt season.

Stosur injured her calf in the late stages of her fourth round win over Mona Barthel at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, and was forced to pull out of the tournament ahead of her quarterfinal match against Angelique Kerber.

Stosur’s management said that the world No.10 would be having treatment on her calf in order to get ready for the WTA event in Charleston in two weeks time.

The Australian reached the fourth round in Miami in 2012 before falling to Serena Williams.

Charleston, an historic WTA Premier-level event played on green clay, marks the beginning of the women’s claycourt season.

Stosur won the Charleston tournament in 2010, and reached the semifinals last year.

    You always said that Charleston is one of your favorite tournaments. So let’s wish that you’ll be able to recover totally until then and have a successful and enjoyable experience there! And that you stay healthy and well-tempered for the rest of it. Enjoy your time at “home” in Tampa! Love, Christian

    To Sam Stosur,
    I hope you have recovered from your injury and got a good preparation for Charleston .
    When I played tennis sometimes I used to have problems with timing when hitting the ball. This can easily be fixed by having two people hit balls to you in very quick succession for a short time just before you go out to play your match. The timing of hitting the ball comes good almost immediately- its amazing.
    Best wishes,
