Emma Raducanu, the top-ranked player in the United Kingdom, withdrew from the Transylvania Open in Romania due to a wrist issue.
Last year, the 19-year-old, whose father was born in Romania, advanced to the tournament’s quarterfinals.
In her first full year on the WTA circuit, Raducanu has had injury problems as she attempts to build on her 2021 US Open triumph.
Her most recent injury forced her to withdraw from the Korea Open semi-final against Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia.
The 67th-ranked Raducanu then competed at the Ostrava Open but was defeated by Russian Daria Kasatkina in the first round.
Raducanu was eliminated by Caroline Garcia of France from Wimbledon’s second round earlier this year.
“Sadly, Emma Raducanu’s wrist injury forces her to withdraw from the Transylvania Open. Emma, get well asap! In the near future, we hope to see you “on social media, the tournament’s organizers said.
The Billie Jean King Cup will begin on November 8 in Glasgow, and Great Britain captain Anne Keothavong will reveal her starting lineup on Monday.
