The Roland Garros loses one of its protagonists; Jessica Pegula announced through an Instagram post that she withdrew from the Parisian Slam to focus on recovering from the injury that has been tormenting her for weeks. Jessica will thus miss her first Slam since 2019; in fact, the US tennis player had been playing all the Majors constantly and consecutively for almost five years.

The neck injury created problems for her starting from Charleston, forcing her to skip first Madrid and then Rome. Already on the eve of the Rome tournament you had mentioned the possibility of skipping the Roland Garros, writing in an Instagram story:

"I will miss Rome and possibly the Roland Garros. I actually feel really good but have to work back into training at pace!"

Now confirmation has arrived that she will have to skip the French Open.

"Hi guys. Unfortunately this year I won't be able to play the Roland Garros. If I had had another 5-7 days I would have been there 100%. So I will definitely be back for a full grass season and for the rest of the summer and for the rest of the year. I have to count that game. I'm almost back to practicing normally, I haven't had any problems in weeks, but I've been playing it safe with recovery and getting back to playing," she wrote.

Pegula should return to the court for the garss-swing, trying to focus on Wimbledon, the 3rd Slam of the season and one of the most anticipated sporting events of 2024.
