Czech Karolina Pliskova commented on her decision to withdraw from the Doha tournament.
“For a few days I have a high fever. I have pain in my neck or something like that, but I feel incredible tiredness. The pain in my muscles has been haunting me since the morning, even when I haven’t started to train. I just can’t play full force.
We had a very long match with Halep in the “Federation Cup”. The next day I was just exhausted. From the first day in Doha, I felt not the best way. I was not ready to go to court, this has never happened. We all play and travel a lot, so fatigue is completely normal. But my body was not ready for this tournament, ”the WTA press service quoted Pliskova as saying.
