No. 2 seed Konta Withdraws with Shoulder Injury
Volvo Car Open No. 2 seed Johanna Konta has withdrawn from the tournament due to a right shoulder injury.
She won the Miami Open on Saturday, the biggest title of her career.
“I’m very sorry to have to withdraw from Charleston, this is a great tournament and I was really looking forward to taking part,” said Konta, the world No. 7. “I was battling a slight shoulder injury and sickness during Miami which has taken hold since the end of the tournament.”
Konta is replaced by lucky loser Grace Min of the U.S.
