KUZNETSOVA WITHDRAWS FROM THE CITI OPEN® TENNIS TOURNAMENT
WASHINGTON — The WTA Tour informed tournament officials today that Svetlana Kuznetsova has withdrawn from the Citi Open Tennis Tournament due to a lower left leg injury.
“Unfortunately I have had to pull out of Washington,” Kuznetsova said. “I am so sorry to have to do this but my body doesn’t feel up to it. I hope to be back next year. It’s so nice here and I’m disappointed, but I hope for a quick recovery. Good luck to the rest of the players, and to the fans, I hope you enjoy the rest of the tournament.”
Her withdrawal means that Sloane Stephens now advances to the quarterfinals.
