Petra Kvitova Withdraws From Eastbourne Due To Injury

Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova has officially withdrawn from the Eastbourne grass-court championships due to a hamstring injury.

The 3rd seed Kvitova was set to play a third-round match against Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska.

“I’m really disappointed to have to withdraw from Eastbourne this morning,” Kvitova said (h/t ESPN).

“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.”
