Garbiñe Muguruza is going to skip the French Open and Wimbledon — the sites of her two Grand Slam titles — during an extended break from tennis.
The former No. 1-ranked woman hasn’t played a match on tour since Jan. 30 and is 0-4 so far this year. She wrote in an Instagram post Monday that she will miss the entire clay-court and grass-court portions of the season.
“Spending time with my family and friends and it’s really been healthy and amazing so I am going to lengthen this period till summer,” Muguruza said.
She added: “Thanks for all the lovely messages and will be updating you guys.”
The 29-year-old Spaniard won the French Open in 2016 — beating Serena Williams in the final — and Wimbledon in 2017 — beating Venus Williams in the final.
Muguruza also was the runner-up at Wimbledon in 2015 and the Australian Open in 2020.
