GarbiÃ±e Muguruza withdrew from her China Open first match against Czech Barbora Strykova on Monday due to physical issues.
The World No.1 was one set behind 1-6 and trailing two games to Strykova in the second set when she decided to withdraw after calling the trainer, reports Efe.
“It’s very tough; I got a virus in Wuhan. I couldn’t perform today,” Muguruza, who made 16 unforced errors in the 27-minute first set, said. “It’s the easy way to think: ‘don’t go on the court’. I want to feel like giving the last chance, going on the court, just hit (a) few balls, see how I’m going to feel, try to turn things around,” she added.
