Marbella withdrawal

Marbella withdrawal

Ana has withdrawn from the Andalucia Tennis Experience, an International series tournament that will take place in Marbella, Spain, during 4-10 April.

She explained: "It is with a heavy heart that I am making this withdrawal. I've had so many small things go wrong with my body this past month, and it's only thanks to the brilliance of my doctor that I've been able to compete in Indian Wells and Miami.

"I've been doing therapy every day and it's taken its toll. I don't feel I can continue struggling this way, onto another tournament. I need a break, and unfortunately that means that I have decided to withdraw from Marbella.

"I am very sorry to anyone who was hoping to see me play there this year, and I wish the organizers a very successful tournament."

Ana's next scheduled event is the Fed Cup World Group Play-Off against Slovakia in Bratislava on April 16-17.
