Kenin ready to rumble in Miami following emergency appendectomy

With the 2021 Miami Open underway, World No.4 Sofia Kenin is ready to take to the courts following a recent health scare.

The 2020 Australian Open champion underwent an emergency appendectomy shortly after this year's Grand Slam in Melbourne, but has since recovered and seems to be in good spirits.

"I had surgery in Australia," Kenin said. "I had to get my appendix removed. I think that of course was unfortunate. I could use that time as a break to get it together and somehow just take my mind off tennis. Right now I'm just grateful to have fully in a way recovered after my surgery. I'm playing well."

Although a few top WTA players are missing from this year's Miami Open, there is still a very strong field present. However, the American seems set on showcasing her ability after her extended medical hiatus.

"Given the circumstances, I still don't feel 100% with my tennis-wise since I took a few weeks off and everything. I'm just happy that I'm able to play Miami Open. It was my eye, that was what I was planning to shoot for, start again my tour. I'm super happy."
