Wimbledon: Hit in the legs and feet, Sebastian Korda withdraws from the tournament

He couldn’t be stubborn anymore. After being eliminated in the first round at Eastbourne on Monday by John Millman, 86th player in the world, in two sets (6-3, 7-6), Sebastian Korda has decided to end his grass season. And for good reason, the American is overwhelmed by pain in the lower limbs and feet, a suffering that he cannot and no longer wants to endure on the court. He will therefore not be at Wimbledon (June 27-July 10) next week.

The person concerned explained himself through a message on social networks. “Unfortunately I had to withdraw from Wimbledon today (Monday) after my match at Eastbourne. I’ve been playing through terrible shin splints and destroyed feet for some time now, and I can’t go on like this. I was advised to rest and giving myself some recovery time is the best way to proceed for the future. I hope I will be ready for the US Open series (summer tour leading to the US Open in August, editor’s note)”, he tweeted.

He was among the Wimbledon underdogs

Last year, Korda came close to the quarter-finals at the All England Club, losing on the wire in the eighth after an epic match against Karen Khachanov (3-6, 6-4, 6-3, 5-7, 10 -8). His quality of serve and the power of his flat shots certainly made him dangerous and he was among the underdogs to watch for the 2022 edition of Wimbledon.

But Korda had given some signs of weakness against Pablo Carreno Busta in the second round of Halle last week (6-4, 0-6, 6-3 defeat). His body obviously struggled to withstand the repeated efforts of the season in body and the American chose to listen to him.
