Yet another WTA Top 10 early exit

The season is just a few days old and we've already seen almost all of the WTA's Top 10 players withdraw or retire from matches at their Australian Open tune-ups. World No. 3 Garbine Muguruza kept the streak going on Wednesday, retiring with a left foot injury down 7–6, 1–0 to Varvara Lepchenko in Brisbane. It was later confirmed that the injury is related to ongoing issues with plantar fasciitis in her foot.
