Stosur withdraws from Cincinatti and Montreal
World No.5 Sam Stosur has withdrawn from the Western & Southern Financial Group Women’s Open and the Rogers Cup due to an arm injury.
The Australian who fell in the quarterfinals at San Diego to Flavia Pennetta pulled out of the next two events on her schedule after consulting with doctors.
“I had an MRI on Friday afternoon and the doctor advised me to rest my arm. Therefore, I unfortunately have to withdraw from Cincinnati and Montreal.
“It’s very disappointing for me. I’m sorry to the fans and tournament organisers. These are both great events and I was really looking forward to playing them.”
