Muguruza edges past Bertens but withdraws from Sydney quarterfinals

Muguruza edges past Bertens but withdraws from Sydney quarterfinals

Spain's world No. 3 Garbine Muguruza was forced to pull out of the Sydney International with an injury, just hours after her win over Kiki Bertens yesterday.

"I am disappointed but I have talked to the WTA doctors and my team after the match today and following their recommendation, I have to withdraw from the tournament", Muguruza explained.

"I already felt it in Brisbane, so I thought I was going to be much better, but it came back".

"(But) not about my fitness state because I feel it's a little bit, surprisingly, I don't know, weird.

But the injury favoured Daria Gavrilova.

The contest appeared delicately poised at 3-3 in the opening set but a host of unforced errors undid Stosur's bright start, and the more the 33-year-old was challenged by her compatriot the less answers she had to offer.

"For sure in that match the first set was the key, key point in that match", Radwanska said.

Gavrilova took out Wednesday night's all-Australian second-round clash 6-4 6-2 on Ken Rosewall Arena and, courtesy of Garbine Muguruza's quarter-final withdrawal, will advance to the final four by walkover. "I think she was a little bit upset about losing that first set". Radwanska, unseeded and out of the top 8 for the first time since 2010, followed her revenge over Johanna Konta, who had beaten her a year ago, with a convincing performance that led to the 16th win here, more than any other player in the draw (Cibulkova owns 12-9 record). Radwanska will play Camila Giorgi, who beat two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova 7-6 (7), 6-2.

Muguruza broke at the start of the second set against the 26-year-old world number 32 but struggled to impose herself during the key moments, only converting three of 13 break-point opportunities and dropping her serve in the eighth game.

The Wimbledon champion accepted a wildcard into the tournament after retiring with leg cramps during her opening match at the Brisbane International last week and called for a medical time-out after the third game against Bertens.
