Kuznetsova also withdrew from this week's event in Doha with an abdominal injury. Bouchard also withdrew with an abdominal injury, while defending-champion Errani is not playing because of an adductor problem.

The Premier event is still scheduled to have several Top 10 players, with Angelique Kerber also vying to get back the No. 1 ranking.
