SYDNEY, January 10, 2018
Garbine Muguruza of Spain has withdrawn from her quarterfinal match at the Sydney International due to a right thigh injury.
“I am disappointed but I have talked to the WTA doctors and my team after the match today and following their recommendation, I have to withdraw from the tournament. I have felt pain in my right adductor since I started practicing here. Yesterday I felt better and wanted to play. However, during the match today the pain has been there all the time but I wanted to compete. I want to thank the tournament and the fans in Sydney for their support”.
The winner of today’s second round match between Sam Stosur and Daria Gavrilova will receive a walkover in the quarterfinals and advance directly to the Sydney International semifinals.
