Erakovic, who came through qualifying to reach the main draw, was down 5-1 to Russian wildcard Daria Gavrilova in the first set when she was forced to retire.

The nature of her injury is unclear and it's uncertain whether she'll be able to play doubles with the German Andrea Petkovic at the $7 million tournament.
