Halep Recovering from Nose Surgery

By Alberto Amalfi | Tuesday September 13, 2022

Simona Halep will take a break from tennis while recovering from nose surgery.

The former world No. 1 underwent surgery to correct an issue that was hampering her breathing.

Halep said she was struggling at times to breathe through a blocked nose during the US Open Series.

"I had been struggling for a while with nose problems and it got worse during the summer, especially in Washington," Halep posted on Twitter. "This problem made it hard to breathe and and even worse during the night as I was going through a complete blocked nose.

"The only way to solve the problem was to undergo a surgery. Everything went well. I will need a few weeks of rest before I can resume any physical activity. See you soon on the courts."

The ninth-ranked Romanian won her 24th career title in Toronto last month. Halep conceded a walkover in her Cincinnati second round and was upset in the opening round of the US Open by 124th-ranked Ukranian qualifier Daria Snigur.
