The hamstring injury that led Angelique Kerber to retire down 0-5 in the second set against Genie Bouchard in Madrid last month has returned, just in time for Wimbledon.
Kerber lost her first match both in Rome and at the French Open. She said she felt fine when she returned to the courts. But it flared up again.
“It was okay and I started practising again after Paris and then I felt it again in the last few days. I don’t want to risk anything now, to do something (worse),” she told reporters.
