Agnieszka Radwanska’s US Open appearance threatened


Hardcourt season didn’t have a warm welcome in cards for Agnieszka Radwanska. The abrupt switch from grass took its toll on the Pole’s body and now she’s retired from her New Haven opener with a right shoulder injury. Radwanska, who was top seed at the New Haven Open, is hoping that resting will recover her by Monday and the US Open.

I’ve been struggling with my shoulder for a couple of weeks now, pretty much since the start of the hardcourt season two weeks ago. I think maybe the change of surface and balls since coming from the Olympics was just too much, and I’ve played a lot this year as well.

Olga Govortsova won the first seven games of the second-round encounter with Radwanska, and at 6-0 2-1 down the world No.2 retired. (source: WTA Tour, photo: Ralf Reinecke)
