The 19-year-old winner of the Eastbourne warm-up tournament
injured her left thigh shortly before play was suspended because
of bad light late on Saturday, with Shvedova leading 7-6 6-6.
The American's withdrawal sends 26-year-old Shvedova, ranked 65,
into the last 16, where she will face either 11th-seeded Serbian
Ana Ivanovic or German 19th seed Sabine Lisicki.
