In an interview on Thursday at Roland Garros, Mouratoglou said Williams had been told to “rest for 15 days” before returning to action.
“It’s a muscular injury, and if she had continued here, it would probably have become a tear,” Mouratoglou said. “So in 15 days, it should normally be healed, and she will be able to play again.”
In Mouratoglou’s view, the double duty contributed to her risk of injury in Paris.
Will she play doubles at Wimbledon, too?
“If she does, the same thing to me again, it’s incredible,” he said. “Normally no and with the discussion we had afterward, it’s impossible. But with her, you never know. She’s unpredictable.”
