Kirsten Flipkens has to give up for Roland Garros due to an ankle injury

Kirsten Flipkens moet door enkelblessure verstek geven voor Roland Garros

Kirsten Flipkens (WTA-92) gives forfait for Roland-Garros, the second Grand Slam of the season, which starts May 30 in Paris. The 35-year-old Kempense is struggling with an ankle injury.

“Of course it hurts that I have to cancel for a Grand Sam, but I want to be able to give one hundred percent when I am on the court,” Flipens tweeted. “It is the first time in a long time that I will have to miss a Grand Slam. They are the tournaments you dream of as a child and work so hard for, but my health comes first. I have to exercise patience, keep working hard and above all listen to my body to be able to come back completely fit. ”

It had been 2012 since Flipkens was not there at a Grand Slam. Then she was unable to qualify for the Australian Open and missed Roland-Garros and Wimbledon after blood clots were found in her calf. Since the US Open in 2012, she has played 33 Grand Slams in a row. In 2013 she reached the semi-finals of Wimbledon. At Roland-Garros, she never made it further than the second round with twelve participations.
