MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Another bad break for Bacsinszky

In 2016, Switzerland’s Timea Bacsinszky was top-10 and an Olympic silver medalist.

A year ago, she was this close to the French Open final.

This spring, she was fighting back after a left thigh injury, and right hand surgery cost her the second half of 2017.

Now, another bad break:  Bacsinszky tore her calf warming up for her first-round match in Rabat, Morocco. And she had to withdraw.

She’s defending nearly 1,000 of her 1,132 ranking points from now through the French Open.

If she misses it, she’d drop down to about No. 330.
