Camila Osorio withdraws from the Monterrey Open due to injury

Colombian Camila Osorio had to retire from the Monterrey Open, a WTA 250 hard court tournament, due to injury against Egyptian seventh seed Mayar Sherif, who advanced to the second round on Tuesday.

Sherif, tennis player 53 in the WTA ranking, won the first set 7-6 (5) and had a 4-2 lead in the second set when Osorio, a finalist in the last Monterrey Open, withdrew due to a muscle ailment.

In the second round of Monterrey, which awards a $259,303 purse, Mayar later meets the winner of the duel between American Sachia Vickery and China’s Xinyu Wang.

In an even first sleeve that ended in a tiebreak, Sherif triumphed 7-6 (5) in sudden death betting on a game close to the net in which she beat Osorio, world number 70, with drop shots. .

The Egyptian won 91.3 percent of the points on her first serve and had four aces that set her apart from the Colombian.

Sherif led in the second set, thanks to breaking Osorio’s serve in the second game and saving his own serve in the fifth, the only time his serve was compromised.

In the seventh game, Osorio received medical attention to his left leg and tried to play another game, but suffered from the physical discomfort and decided to retire when he was 4-2 down.
