- ‘Meteor’ that caused buzz turns out to be human waste discarded by airplane
Petra Kvitova has pulled out of the grass-court tournament in Eastbourne because of an abdominal injury, a day after winning her first title since her playing hand was injured in a knife attack.
Organizers of the Aegon International confirmed Kvitova’s withdrawal on Monday, a week before the start of Wimbledon. She won the Wimbledon title in 2011 and ’14.
Kvitova won the grass-court Aegon Classic in Birmingham on Sunday by beating Ashleigh Barty 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 in the final. It was only her second tournament since she was attacked at her home in December.
