Canadian Genie Bouchard has withdrawn from the U.S. Open women’s singles competition due to a concussion, Tournament Director David Brewer announced Sunday.

Bouchard was injured when she slipped and fell in the locker room on Friday. She withdrew from the women’s doubles and mixed doubles competitions Saturday.

The 21-year-old had reached the fourth round of the U.S. Open for the the second straight year, in just her third appearance.

She was slated to play Roberta Vinci Sunday in the fourth round of the women’s draw. Vinci will advance to her third U.S. Open quarterfinal in four years as a result of the withdrawal.
