“I’m disappointed, but there’s nothing you can do. I’m feeling pretty good, so hopefully my condition won’t get worse,” said Vondroušová, who may end this season with a negative balance of 8-10.
“We are very sorry, Markéta was one of the domestic hopes in the main competition at the tournament. We now wish her a speedy recovery,” said tournament director Laura Ceccarelli.
The tournament in the Ostravar Arena, which is to be followed only by the November event in Linz, has thus lost another domestic star. Petra Kvitová announced the end of the season on Thursday due to fatigue.
Karolína Plíšková, Karolína Muchová and Barbora Strýcová should start in the main competition. Marie should intervene in the qualification Bouzková, Kateřina Siniaková, Kristýna Plíšková and Tereza Martincová.
