Petra Kvitova not taking any risks, pulls out of Eastbourne
Petra Kvitova has pulled out of the Nature Valley International due to a hamstring problem.
The third seed was due to play Agnieszka Radwanska in the last 16 in Eastbourne on Wednesday.
However, the two-time Wimbledon champion opted to withdraw from the tournament just hours before clash as she didn’t want to take any risks ahead of The Championships.
“I’m really disappointed to have to withdraw from Eastbourne this morning,” she said.
“I felt my hamstring in the Birmingham final and although I played with tape in my match here yesterday, when I woke up this morning it felt worse.
“With Wimbledon around the corner I couldn’t take the risk of making it worse by playing today.”
