Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

NUREM­BERG, Ger­many Eu­ge­nie Bouchard has with­drawn from the Nurem­berg Cup ten­nis tour­na­ment with a right an­kle in­jury.

The 2014 cham­pion in­formed tour­na­ment di­rec­tor San­dra Re­ichel of her de­ci­sion late Mon­day, when an MRT scan showed she had torn a lig­a­ment in train­ing the pre­vi­ous week.

The in­jury put the Cana­dian’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in the French Open in doubt.

“She told me she needs a mir­a­cle,” Re­ichel said Tues­day. “She sent for her doc­tor from Canada.”
