Agnieszka Radwanska is set to miss the first Roland Garros in 11 years

A former world number 2 and the winner of 20 WTA titles, Agnieszka Radwanska, has made her Grand Slam debut at Wimbledon 2006 at the age of 17, reaching the last 16 and winning 124 Grand Slam matches overall since then. A four-time Australian Open and Wimbledon semi-finalist and 2012 Wimbledon runner-up has been playing in every Grand Slam event since that Wimbledon 12 years ago, competing in 37 consecutive Majors before she had to end that streak when she announced the withdrawal from the upcoming Roland Garros. Radwanska is currently ranked 28th and her last match came on April 24, when she had to retire against Donna Vekic in the opening round of Istanbul due to back problems, that have sidelined her from competing in Paris as well, as she failed to recover for the second Grand Slam of the season.

Between 2008-2016, Agnieszka has been ranked in the year-end Top 10 in eight out of nine seasons and she is on a constant downfall since reaching the final in Auckland back in 2017, advancing into the last four only once after that and failing to make an impression besides that win over Simona Halep in Miami back in March.

Starting from 2007, Radwanska has won 23 matches in Paris (her least favorite Slam) and she reached the quarter-final in 2013 when Sara Errani halted her in two close sets. It is still uncertain when we are going to see Agnieszka on the court again but she certainly wants to make a comeback only when she is 100% fit to play, something that is not the case at the moment.
