Sorana Cirstea has shut down her season.

Cirstea suffered a torn calf muscle training for this week’s Linz tournament that has forced her to withdraw.

“Due to an injury sustained two days ago in practice here in Linz, I have to withdraw from one of my favorite tournaments,” Cirstea posted. “The MRI showed a tear in the calf muscle so the doctors advised me not to go on court.”
