World No.1 Ana Ivanovic has called a halt to her Wimbledon preparations after pulling out of the International Women’s Open in Eastbourne next week.

Ivanovic stated she is suffering from a muscle injury, but also admitted she needs a break after winning the French Open. “I have a problem with my abductor, but I am also mentally exhausted. I am not ready to compete so soon after winning my first Grand Slam.”

“I’m very sorry to anyone who was hoping to see me play in Eastbourne,” the 20-year-old added.

Former world number one Lindsay Davenport and 2006 Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo are still expected to play at the event, which starts next Monday.
