Canadian tennis star, Eugenie Bouchard, suffered a huge setback to her US Open outing after she reportedly plunged to the ground in the locker room and suffered a head injury.

This, apparently, occurred after Bouchard paired with Australia’s Nick Kyrgios to topple Ukraine’s Elina Svitolina and New Zealand’s Artem Sitak 7-5 6-3 in the mixed doubles first round.

Consequently, Bouchard was compelled to pull out of her Saturday fixtures at the tournament that included second round mixed doubles and women’s doubles event.

An official statement from tournament director, David Brewer, read: ” Bouchard is withdrawing from both the women’s doubles and mixed doubles competition at 2015 US Open. Following the competition yesterday evening, Bouchard slipped and fell in the locker room and sustained a head injury. The severity of the injury was and continues to be assessed by the on-site medical personnel at the US Open. The medical staff has recommended that Bouchard withdraw from today’s competitions, and Bouchard is following that advice. No determination about competing in the singles competition has been made at this time. Bouchard will continue with medical evaluation and treatment for the remainder of the day. An update on her condition will be provided later today.”
