The Olympic Games may be hit by another withdrawal after Slovak tennis star Dominika Cibulkova hinted that she might not make the cut to Rio.

The 10th-ranked Cibulkova has been battling health issues that seem to have compelled a change in her schedule.

“I was supposed to fly from here to Olympic Games, but I’m having the health issues, so I have to fly back home to see my doctor and see what is happening,” Tennis Now quoted Cibulkova, who suffered a second-round loss to Eugenie Bouchard at the Rogers Cup in Montreal.

“So I hope it will be fine and I will be ready for Olympics, but right now it’s not looking good,” she added.

Besides competing in the singles, Cibulkova was also scheduled to feature in the women’s doubles event alongside countrywoman Anna Karolina Schmiedlova.

Should she decided to give it a miss, she will join the likes of Roger Federer, Milos Raonic, Simona Halep, Belinda Bencic, Jiri Vesely, Tomas Berdych, Victoria Azarenka, and Karolina Pliskova among the other tennis players to have pulled out.
