Natalie Gulbis underwent blood tests Saturday after withdrawing from the HSBC Women's Champions with an unspecified illness her instructor initially suspected could be malaria. Gulbis pulled out of the $1.4 million event before the second round on Friday with flu-like symptoms.

Gulbis shot an opening-round 75 on Thursday before withdrawing.
