SAN JOSÉ, CA (August 2, 2018) – Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic No. 2 seed Madison Keys has been forced to withdraw from the event due to a right wrist injury. Keys has been replaced in the draw by lucky-loser Magdalena Frech, who will play Ajla Tomljanovic in today’s second round match.

“I am really sorry to have to pull out of the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic,” said Keys. “I have been feeling pain in my wrist over the last couple of days and felt worse today. This event is one of my favorites and I was looking forward to playing here in San Jose, but want to thank the San Jose State University and Mubadala for pulling it together in such a short amount of time. I am excited to come back next year and play in front of your great fans.”

“It is certainly disappointing that Madison has had to withdraw from the event, but unfortunately injuries are a part of sports,” said tournament director Vickie Gunnarsson. “Hopefully she will be able to recover quickly and get back on the court soon.”
