Reassured about her abdominal injury, Clara Burel, the French tennis player, will join Australia on Monday, according to information from L’Equipe.
Visibly reassuring news for Clara Burel. While the French player remains on a forfeit at the Angers Open on December 10, before facing Russian Natalia Vikhlyantseva in the quarter-finals, the situation has since evolved. “I’m super sad to be retiring from this tournament. Especially here at home. I expected to play in front of my audience. That night, I couldn’t get out of bed, ”she said then, about her sad powerless outing in Maine-et-Loire. Indeed, Although she suffered from an abdominal injury, the Rennaise seems to be doing much better and the latest exams have been rather positive for her. According to L’Equipe, the control ultrasound was satisfactory, she who initially had to go through the rest box during a well-deserved off-season.

Burel aims for Australian Open debut
“With Clara, we saw each other on Thursday. She stayed in Angers to take care of herself at home and avoid meeting people at the national training center (CNE) because of the risks associated with Covid. Her last ultrasound is good, she has nothing left. So we take off for Australia (this Monday) ”, for his part confided Thierry Champion, the trainer of Burel, to the French sports daily. More fear than harm therefore for the young Frenchwoman, currently 20 years old and ranked 76th in the world at the WTA. Before the Australian Open (January 17-30, 2022), during which she will directly integrate the final table from her place, Burel will try to confirm her potential, while trying to escape the coronavirus, which has been particularly tenacious in recent times. If all goes well by then, the player will try to do better in Melbourne than in her first two rounds here, she who has never passed the 1st round, whether in 2019 (the Spanish Carla Suarez Navarro) or in 2021 (the Belgian Alison van Uytvanck).
