Marin won the All England Open and Swiss Open titles in the previous two weeks.

Having halted a 10-month title drought on the BWF World Tour with back-to-back wins at All England Open and Swiss Open, Carolina Marin has decided to withdraw from the Madrid Spain Masters 2024. After grueling few weeks that has tested her limits, Marin and her team have decided to step back.

It comes as a surprise, especially since the Spain Masters is her home tournament and the three-time world champion would have been a crowd favourite at the arena. She is also yet to win the Spain Masters with her best finish being the runners-up finish in 2020.

Marin made it official on X, formerly Twitter, “Finally, I have decided with my team that I will not play on @madridmasters. It has been a few weeks of hard work and we need to recover after that effort. I am very sad not to be able to compete at home, but we have to listen to our body.”

Marin’s absence from the Madrid Masters will be felt deeply, especially for home fans. Fresh off her victory at the All England Open, Marin continued her winning streak at the BWF Swiss Open 2024.

Her second All England Open title, secured against Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi, was particularly poignant, coming nine years after her first win at the tournament and with her mother in the stands.

The Swiss Open finals too presented a different challenge to Carolina Marin in the form of Tomoka Miyazaki, a young talent who had previously ousted ex-world champion PV Sindhu. Marin had to dig deep against Miyazaki’s exuberance but ultimately her seasoned class shone through despite trailing initially.

In the Olympic year, Carolina Marin is gunning for her second gold medal at the Olympics. Marín, who made history by becoming the first non-Asian woman to win Olympic badminton singles at Rio 2016 is looking for another piece of silverware and a bit of history as she looks to become the first woman to hold the All England Open, Swiss Open, and Olympic titles at the same time.
