Iga Swiatek withdraws from the Madrid Open due to pain in his right arm

World number one Iga Swiatek withdrew from the Madrid Open due to a sore right arm.

Swiatek, who has linked four titles, was to be the top seed in the women’s draw at the clay-court tournament that kicks off this week.

“It’s time to take care of my arm that has bothered me since the Miami Open and I haven’t had time to take care of it properly,” said the 20-year-old from Poland. “I need to take a break after playing hard so I can take good care of my arm.”

Swiatek won the Stuttgart Open on Sunday, adding that title to those he captured in Doha, Indian Wells and Miami. He maintains a streak of 23 wins.

“My body needs rest,” he said. “I have to take some time to prepare for Rome and Paris. Hopefully I can play in Madrid many times in the future”.

The Spanish Paula Badosa is the second seed in Madrid.
