Kvitova Pulls out of Brisbane with Viral Illness

Posted on January 1, 2018 at 1:04 PM

The Czech had to miss the main draw but hopes to be fully recovered for next week’s event in Sydney. Petra Kvitova has been forced out of this week’s Brisbane International due to a viral illness. The 27-year-old World No.29 said she became ill on the long flight over to Australia and wasn’t able to recover in time to play the main draw on Monday.

She was replaced by Heather Watson in the main draw.

The bad news is I started my year in bed with a virus and was unable to play today in Brisbane, the good news is that I am here in Australia and hopefully will be ready to play in Sydney next week. Happy New Year everyone – I can’t wait to see what 2018 brings for us all ❤️
