The Spanish Paula Badosa announced this Saturday that, despite "trying everything", she still has not recovered from the back injury suffered last May in Rome and that she "ends" her season, two days before the start of the US Open, in the one in which she was registered and in which she would debut against the veteran Venus Williams.
"Hello everyone, I wanted to update you on my situation with the injury... After struggling for many months to compete again, I am ending my season. Those of you who know me know how much I like to compete and how difficult it has been to take this decision," Badosa wrote on his Instagram account
"We have tried everything together with my team but the pain is not letting me move forward. Thanks to the people who are still by my side in these hard times. See you next year, stronger than ever," concluded the Catalan.
Badosa, 25, suffered a stress fracture of the L4 vertebra at the Rome tournament and missed Roland Garros.
She returned at Wimbledon, but withdrew after a negative performance against the Ukrainian Marta Kostyuk in the second round (6-1 and 1-0).
Champion in Indian Wells 2021, Badosa became number two in the world in April 2022, but her last two seasons have been very complicated.
The Catalan currently occupies the 46th position in the world ranking.
