Romanian tennis player Simona Halep, 27, 2nd WTA, has decided on Monday to withdraw from the tournament of Stuttgart, the first one of the tennis season on clay.

Halep explained the reason for withdrawal and the need for a break.

“It happened during the match against Garcia (Caroline Garcia – in Fed Cup semi-finals in Rouen, our note), I felt pain on my hip and I am not ready, I am not 100% fit to get on the court. I gave everything in those matches, but we could not win. My dream is gone. I’ve decided to withdraw as, first of all, I need to take care of my health,” Simona Halep said.

About the Fed Cup semi-final she added: “I am sad because I gave everything and I wanted us to win the Fed Cup. I’ve been very sad during the past two days. I’ve been through such moments several times before and I know to manage the situation. I need to recover mentally and physically and start all over again.”

Halep said she will have two weeks of break to recover, during this interval she would spend time with her niece.
