Defending Champion Withdraws From Madrid Open

Defending champion Ons Jabeur’s unfortunate injury has forced her to withdraw from the Madrid Open, where she was set to defend her title. The Tunisian player had to retire from her Porsche Tennis Open semi-final in Stuttgart against Iga Swiatek due to a calf injury. 

Despite undergoing numerous medical exams, it was revealed that Jabeur had suffered a small tear in her calf, which requires more recovery time. Jabeur expressed her disappointment on Instagram, stating that she was sad to miss the event and wished everyone a great tournament.

Ons Jabeur made history in the 2022 Madrid Open final, becoming the first African player to win a WTA 1000 event. Jabeur defeated Jessica Pegula 7-5, 0-6, 6-2 to secure the title. 

However, Jabeur’s return to defend her title this year has been cut short due to a calf injury, which she suffered during her semi-final match at the Porsche Tennis Open in Stuttgart. Jabeur’s injury has left her fans and supporters disappointed, as they were looking forward to watching her play at the Madrid Open.

Ons Jabeur’s injury has left a vacancy for another player to step up and claim the Madrid Open title. Jabeur was due to play either Ana Bogdan of Romania or Anna Bondar of Hungary in the second round. Both players now have an opportunity to advance further in the tournament. 

The Madrid Open is a significant event in the WTA calendar, and with Jabeur’s withdrawal, the competition has become more unpredictable. It remains to be seen who will emerge as the champion this year.
