The Wimbledon championships are scheduled to take place in London between June 27 and July 10, while the Poland Open is due to be held in the Polish capital from July 25 to 31, the tennisworldusa.org website reported.

Meanwhile, the Polish world No. 1 has withdrawn from the upcoming Madrid Open tournament in Spain due to a shoulder injury.

"After intense last weeks and winning four titles in a row it's time to take care of my arm that has been fatigued since the Miami Open and I haven't had a chance to handle it properly," Świątek wrote on Twitter.

"I need a break from playing so intensively in order to treat my arm well and that's why, unfortunately, I have to withdraw from the Mutua Madrid Open," she added. "My body needs rest. I'm going to take some time to prepare for Rome and Paris. See you soon there."

The Polish player on Sunday cruised past Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka to win the Stuttgart Open tournament in Germany, claiming her seventh career singles title.

The 20-year-old earlier this month won the Miami Open tournament in the US state of Florida.
