Switzerland’s Belinda Bencic’s injury woes continue.

More: What We're Reading on Day 4 of Wimbledon

The No.7 seed retired after down a set and a break down to American qualifier Julia Boserup, a 24-year-old World No.225, with a left wrist injury.

Bencic, who had just returned to the tour after a two-month hiatus due to a wrist injury, also suffered a lower body injury at Birmingham two weeks ago in just her second week back in action.

“I don't know what it is yet,” said Bencic of her wrist. “It's nothing too serious. I think I have to get it checked.”

The Swiss hinted that it was problematic on Day 3 when she eased past Tsvetana in straight sets on Centre Court.

Boserup moved ahead in the first set by breaking for 3-2. She then held serve easily in the next two games, and battled from deuce while serving for the set, clinching the set on a backhand error by Bencic.

“I always try to go on the court to see what happens and how I feel,” Bencic said. “It just wasn't enough. I cannot play like this against such a good player.”
