Garbiñe Muguruza pulled out of the Madrid Open on Thursday after failing to get better from a leg damage.
The Spaniard was scheduled to face Sloane Stephens within the first spherical.
“That is the worst information and essentially the most painful determination any participant could make,” Muguruza stated. “However the issue has come again and the final scan confirmed that I’m not 100% recovered to have the ability to compete and the medical advice is to relaxation.”
Additionally, Jil Teichmann beat fourth-seeded Elina Svitolina 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (5) within the first spherical, whereas Angelique Kerber defeated Marketa Vondrousova 7-6 (5), 6-1 and Kiki Bertens beat Victoria Jiménez 6-4, 6-0.
