World number one Simona Halep  has withdrawn from Nature Valley International tournament holding in Eastbourne, UK due to injury.

The Romanian took to her twitter handle @simona_halep on Wednesday to announce her withdrawal from the event beginning from June 22 to June 30.

“I am sorry to announce that I am withdrawing from next week’s Nature Valley International.

I was experiencing Achilles tendon pain and inflammation during the French Open and it has yet to fully recover.

I have been advised by my doctors that it needs more rest while continuing treatment.

I loved competing in Eastbourne last year and hope to see you at this wonderful event next year,’’ she said.
