World No. 1 Iga Swiatek cited physical and mental fatigue in her decision to withdraw from the ecotrans Ladies Open in Berlin, Germany.

The WTA 500 event begins on Monday.

Swiatek is fresh off winning her third consecutive French Open title and fourth in the last five years. The 23-year-old Poland native posted a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Jasmine Paolini of Italy in the women's final on Saturday in Paris.

"Due to overall physical and mental fatigue after an intense 9 weeks, unfortunately I do need to withdraw from the tournament in Berlin in order to rest and recover," Swiatek said in a statement to the tournament Wednesday.

Paolini also withdrew from the Berlin event due to injury.

Swiatek's next scheduled tournament is Wimbledon, which begins on July 1.
