Ana withdraws from Zurich

Ana withdraws from Zurich

Ana has been forced to withdraw from the Zurich Open due to the shoulder injury she sustained during practice in Stuttgart a fortnight ago. The doctor’s advice is that though the injury has healed, her shoulder is not yet ready for competition.

“I'm so disappointed to withdraw from Zurich but really there is no choice,” said Ana. “Unfortunately this tournament has come too soon. I learned the hard way last year that you mustn’t rush your comeback. But I am still hoping to play in Linz (which begins on 23 October)."

“It’s especially frustrating because Zurich is probably my favourite non-Grand Slam tournament, I have a special relationship with Switzerland. But I am still only 18 and I’m sure I’m going to play there many times in the future.”
