A statement released expressed Kim’s disappointment but said she would focus on returning for a healthy US Open campaign for possibly the last time in her career.
“At this moment I feel frustrated that it has to happen now before one of my favorite tournaments.
I’ve always enjoyed being a part of the Wimbledon atmosphere but I have no other choice now but to rest, recover and to not play tennis for a few weeks. In about a month, Kim will resume training and start rebuilding.
She wants to prepare the best way possible for the US tour later this summer, with the US Open as the main goal.”
Sam Querrey and Benjamin Becker have also withdrawn and Lleyton Hewitt is in doubt.
