Former world No 1 Caroline Wozniacki as well as Caroline Garcia have withdrawn from this week’s Qatar Open.
2018 Australian Open champion Wozniacki was due to take on Czech qualifier Karolina Muchova in a first-round clash in Doha on Tuesday, but she pulled out of the event due to a viral illness.
She is replaced in the draw by lucky loser Samantha Stosur.
Meanwhile, former world No 4 Garcia withdrew ahead of her match against Lesia Tsurenko with the Frenchwoman struggling with a leg injury.
“I played FC this weekend and I arrived this morning very early,” she said.
“When I warm up, I feel pain in my left quad – I was not feeling comfortable with it and it was getting worse through the practice. I had to play in one hour and it was too short to make any recovery.”
