Monica Puig is not going through a good moment. The current world No. 63 singles player has announced a sad news for her fans and herself as a player on Thursday through a statement. Puig, the 2016 Olympic Gold champion in women's tennis, has withdrawn from the Internationaux de Strasbourg and Roland Garros due to a right hip muscle that affected her during her qualies match in Rome on Sunday.
She now needs a few weeks of rest, recovery, and treatment. 'It will sadly mean that I am going to miss the Strasbourg tournament next week, an event so close to my heart as it was the first ever WTA tournament I won, as well as the French Open in Paris', Puig said.
'The good news is that I am as of now scheduled to be back on the court in Nottingham on the grass, which I am really looking forward to as the grass season is one of my favorite part of the year.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal says he had 'great feeling' with Maria Sharapova
