World number one Simona Halep has withdrawn from Nature Valley International tournament holding in Eastbourne, UK due to injury.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