Teen Amanda Anisimova withdraws from Libema Open due to viral illness

Competing in her first WTA-level tournament on grass, the 17-year-old played in the first round of doubles before withdrawing from singles.

Amanda Anisimova is having to take a little time off following her breakthrough French Open, with the 17-year-old withdrawing from this week's WTA event at 's-Hertogenbosch with injury.

Anisimova, competing in her first WTA-level tournament on grass, played in the first round of doubles before withdrawing from singles.

"Unfortunately, I will need more rest and recovery and I will not be able to compete at my best," she said in a statement, as quoted by the WTA.

Anisimova reached the French Open semifinals, defeating the defending champion, Simona Halep.

Petra Martic, who reached the French Open quarterfinals, has also withdrawn with a back injury. 

But No. 4 Kiki Bertens, who withdrew during the French Open with gastrointestinal illness, is returning to competition at her home event. Bertens, who says she's now recovered, was among the favorites at the French Open.
