Sania Mirza announced her decision on her Instagram and wrote, “Hi guys, a quick update. I just have some not so great news. I hurt my forearm/elbow while playing in Canada 2 weeks ago and obviously, didn’t realize how bad it was until I got my scans yesterday and unfortunately I have in fact torn a little bit of my tendon.”

“I will be out for weeks and have pulled out of the US Open. This isn’t ideal and it’s terrible timing and it will change some of my retirement plans but I will keep you posted.” She added further in her Instagram post.

Sania Mirza is the former World Number 1 in Women’s Doubles. She has won the title at the Australian Open, US Open, French Open, and plenty more.
