Cirstea won't play any more tournaments in 2022

Because of a shoulder injury, WTA world number 39 Sorana Cirstea has confirmed that she will not compete in any more tournaments in 2022.

The Romanian player has been battling the injury since the US Open, when she lost in the second round to Belinda Bencic. "Since the US Open I have been dealing with a shoulder injury. The recovery period is longer than I expected and that's why I haven't participated in any tournaments in the last few weeks.

I have decided to finish the 2022 season here, so that I can recover and build a strong team. See you on the field in 2023! ", Sorana Cîrstea wrote on Instagram as quoted by Digi Sport. Cirstea's Romanian compatriot Simona Halep also put an end to her season.

Here is her announcement: “Having problems with the breathing for many years already and becoming worse with the time, I decided to follow the advice of my doctors and do the needed surgery. I couldn’t do it earlier because I never found the necessary three months for recovery.

I did also the esthetic past, that I wanted to do for a long time as I did not like my nose at all. I know many of you can understand me,” Halep added. Speaking on her next plans, Halep said she will take some time to rest and heal before returning to action.

“For the moment I am not thinking anything but recovery. What is sure, is that this year I won’t be able to compete in any official tournament anymore. My 2022 season is over. 2022, you have been an interesting year full of everything!

See you on court, 2023! I feel I still have a lot to do on a tennis court and still have some goals,” Halep concluded.
