Maria withdraws from Cincinnati

Maria has pulled out of the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati due due to an ongoing left forearm injury.

On withdrawing, Maria said:

“I arrived in Cincinnati yesterday eager to play. However, following the doctor’s advice on-site, as a precaution for the US Open, I am unfortunately withdrawing from the tournament with the left forearm injury I sustained in Stanford. I want to thank the tournament for the wildcard opportunity and really look forward to competing here next year.”
