Iga Swiatek’s worrying announcement ahead of Wimbledon: ‘I’m sorry’




Iga Swiatek has sent a scare through fans ahead of Wimbledon after announcing her withdrawal from next week’s grass-court tournament in Berlin due to a shoulder problem.




The 21-year-old won her second grand slam title at the the French Open last week, extending her winning streak to 35 consecutive matches.




But fans will have to wait a little longer to see her attempt to extend the streak even further after the World No.1 announced she won’t play at the German Open.





“Due to a recurrent discomfort I am feeling in my shoulder, unfortunately I need to withdraw from the bett1open in Berlin,” she wrote on Twitter.




“I’m sorry I will not be able to play there. I will focus on recovery and rest in order to be ready for Wimbledon.”




Swiatek was set to open her grass-court season in Berlin, but now joins World No.2 Anett Kontaveit, No.3 Paula Badosa and former World No. 1 Naomi Osaka in pulling out of the event.
