Genie played her last Hopman Cup tie for Canada and they suffered their third straight loss as they lost 2-0 to Belgium.
In the first match Genie lost 4-6 4-6 to Elise Mertens and suffered an injury in the process.
Genie talks about the injury:
“My arse hurts. I think it’s maybe a little strained or a little pulled or something. There was a really sharp pain. I felt it going wide on my backhand and landing on my serve with my left leg. I’m going to the physio now to see what it is. I don’t think it’s too bad but it was getting worse throughout the match. I’m hopeful but you never know. You always get little muscle pulls here or there. But this one specifically, no I’ve never had it before.”
In the second and final match David Goffin defeated Vasek Pospisil 6-2 6-4.
