British star Johanna Konta has pulled herself out of the upcoming Women Tennis Association (WTA) tournament which was held in Chicago and Indian Wells this year due to a horrifying groin injury that also made her miss the US Open tournament, reported British media.
In June this year, Konta also withdrew herself from the prestigious Wimbledon tournament held in June as a member of her team was unfortunately tested positive for COVID-19. She had to also, unfortunately, miss the 2020 Tokyo Olympics mega event as she was also contacted with the COVID-19 virus which crushed her dreams apart. She played her last match against Karolina Muchova of the Czech Republic as she was knocked her by her in the first round itself at the Western and Southern Open held in Cincinnati last month.
The Britain professional player was replaced by US Open 2021 winner Emma Raducanu after she won the title in New York. She will miss the entire tournament as fans from all over the world and the tennis fraternity sends her the best wishes for a speedy recovery, as they can’t wait to see her back in action as soon as possible.
The WTA event in Chicago will officially begin next week, meanwhile, the event held in Indian Wells will also kick start from the week after the Chicago Open.
