In an Instagram post, Bouchard said she’s been suffering from shoulder pain since last fall. After extensive attempts at rehab, Bouchard underwent surgery to repair a torn subscapularis she suffered playing in Mexico in March.

“This past March, I tore my subscapularis in my first round match in Guadalajara,” Bouchard said. “Since then, I have tried every form of conservative treatment and rehab known to man, to no avail.

“So last week, I pulled the trigger and had arthroscopic surgery. Doc says everything went great. I have a tough road of rehab ahead of me, but my spirits are high and I will work hard to get back to the job that I love.”

The 27-year-old Canadian has posted a 5-4 record this season and is currently ranked No. 117. Bouchard’s last Grand Slam main-draw appearance came at Roland Garros last fall where she reached the third round bowing to eventual-champion Iga Swiatek.

Bouchard has reached two Tour-level finals—in Istanbul and Guadalajara—in her last five WTA main-draw appearances.
