Kvitova had made the finals in two of her first three tournaments this year.

With the former world number one's groundstrokes failing her, Kozlova reeled off 11 of the next 12 points, breaking back for 5-5 with a forehand victor.

"Before the match, I did not feel great, and then it just got worse with every second; extreme dizziness and extreme fatigue", Williams said in a statement posted by the tournament.

"I don't really play that often, so when I do, I need to play well", she said.

Carlson was pressed about the age of the children and defended Jeffs more . "They can smell it on you". He is accused of facilitating the marriage between a 16 year old girl and a 27 year old man.

After seeing the trainer and having her blood pressure tested, she continued the match until calling time after just one game of the second set.

"By the score, it might have looked like I started well, but I was not feeling at all well physically", Williams said.

Still seeking her first tournament title since returning in 2018 from a long layoff that included a hard childbirth, the 37-year-old Williams showed excellent form at the start of Sunday's match.

"I can't breath", stated Williams in her conversations with on-court medics, with her coach Patrick Mouratoglou encouraging her to quit the match before she finally conceded. As long as Venus has her return working and is spraying winners, you can live with an inconsistent serve and a higher number of break points.

She quickly called time on proceedings, handing Muguruza a place in the last 16 - where she will meet Kiki Bertens or Johanna Konta.
