Karolina Pliskova has withdrawn from the Madrid Open due to a knee injury, but the former world No. 1 said she hopes to recover in time for next month’s event in Rome ahead of the French Open.

Pliskova, 15th in the world rankings, tweeted that she suffered the injury during her quarterfinal loss to Iga Swiatek at the Stuttgart Open last week.

The Italian Open runs from May 9-20 before Roland Garros, the second Grand Slam of the year, begins May 28.

Pliskova’s best result at the clay-court major came in 2017 when she reached the semifinals.
