This is a bad time for injury. There are 9 months with only 1 major and 3 months with 3 majors and you have to watch for your health now.
Its same for Rodina, another mom, withdrew from the main draw and she needs the money

Sad. But I am not surprised. Vera looked half-dead at French Open. Looked really bad.

Vera is not ready for singles at all now. Such a shame this bad injury

She seemed be so into it. I mean she was pretty excited in her last posts
I hope she will be back soon.
What a pitty!

Sigh . Can't say I am surprised. It must obviously be an injury, but as she did not do any singles warmup torunaments, I had a feeling something was wrong. I was hoping the warm up would be the doubles, but probably it went not well or she felt she was not ready. On to US then hopefully

Yep, indeed. She teams up with Raquel Atawo of US, a veteran, they play Kasatkina and Kontaveit, they won first set 62, second set was interrupted at 56 in second set. They resume today.

Thanks It's a missed opportunity, if it turns out to be true. Vera's definitely top 50 on grass, and she's in a position to pick up points as she didn't play at all in June last year (except Wimbledon qualies). The 100k tournaments in Britain prior are always a good place to rack up some grass wins.

Just noticed she withdrew from 100k in Ilkley on 26th May.

I think she'd mentioned at some point that she'd be retired by 30, and she kept her word. Her biggest aim was to win a slam, and I think she accepted it couldn't happen - she was so heartbroken in the press conference after the Stosur loss. I believe she even did some studying before she had Veronika.

But as for Vera, do we know her grass schedule?
