Kenin has surgery

Sofia Kenin is recovering after undergoing emergency surgery to have her appendix removed on Monday in Melbourne. 

Acute appendicitis was diagnosed following the completion of my CT scan. I had to have surgery and had my appendix removed on Monday, February 15, at Epworth Hospital Richmond. I want to thank everyone at Epworth Hospital Richmond for taking good care of me! Sofia Kenin

The 2020 Australian Open champion said she visited the tournament doctor after suffering acute abdominal pain and was referred to a local hospital for more tests.

“Acute appendicitis was diagnosed following the completion of my CT scan,” Kenin posted on Twitter. “I had to have surgery and had my appendix removed on Monday, February 15, at Epworth Hospital Richmond.

“I want to thank everyone at Epworth Hospital Richmond for taking good care of me!”

The American endured a difficult maiden Grand Slam defence and was knocked out by unseeded Kaia Kanepi  6-3, 6-2 in the second round six days ago.

Kenin, 22, was just the third defending champion not to reach the 3rd round since 1970 and the earliest exit since Jennifer Capriati lost in the 2nd round in 2003.

After her exit, a highly emotional Kenin admitted to being unable to handle the expectations in Melbourne as tears welled up.

Her slump deepened when she was stunned in the 1st round by unranked Australian teenager Olivia Gadecki in the Phillip Island Trophy at Melbourne Park on Sunday before falling ill and being admitted into hospital.
