“Further to many medical exams done, it shows that I have a small tear in my calf and I will need more time to recover,” she wrote on social media. “I am sad to announce that I won’t be able to compete and defend my title at Madrid.”

Jabeur was positioned in yesterday’s draw at Madrid because the No.4 seed. She will likely be changed by a fortunate loser.

It has been a tough season for the Tunisian, who underwent minor knee surgical procedure in February and was simply starting to regain her kind when she injured her calf in Stuttgart.
