Beatriz Haddad Maia forced to withdraw from Guadalajara Open due to scary hotel accident

Beatriz Haddad Maia withdrew from the Guadalajara Open due to an unfortunate accident at the hotel where she was staying.

The Brazilian tennis player was set to make her debut at the Guadalajara Open against American Danielle Collins on the main court. However, a regrettable accident at the hotel prevented her from participating, and she has been forced to withdraw from the tournament.

The world No. 18 announced this through her social media channels, explaining that the door of the shower suddenly opened, causing several cuts on her hands. She was taken to the hospital to receive stitches.

The 27-year-old tennis player reassured her fans, stating that the injury is not serious. She expressed her regret at not being able to play in Mexico on this occasion, as she considers the country special because of its fans and the conditions at the tournaments.

"Hey guys I hope all are doing well Unfortunately this is a more "boring" post, but it is also part of it. Last night, Sunday, at the hotel, getting out of the shower and opening the shower box the door just popped and I ended up cutting some parts of my body off," she added.

"I had to go to the hospital here in Guadalajara to get stitches (between them in both hands) and unfortunately I will not be able to play here in Mexico (special place for us tennis players due to all the responsiveness of the people and efforts of the tournaments)," Haddad Maia wrote on Instagram.

"Besides the scare I'm fine It could be something much more serious. I will need a few days now to heal the wounds and be able to be back for the latter part of the year; and keep fighting for my goals for 2023. I appreciate the affection and good vibes from everyone. Have a nice week and see you soon," she added.

Her withdrawal allows American Sacha Vickery to enter the draw as a lucky loser, facing former Australian Open finalist Danielle Collins.
