Russiaâ€™s Vera Zvonareva has withdrawn from the French Open with a right shoulder injury prior to her Monday match.
“Unfortunately my shoulder injury has not healed so I have to withdraw. It’s not good enough to compete. I had to make this choice,” said the eleventh seed.
Sheâ€™ll be replaced in the draw by lucky loser Sesil Karatantcheva of Kazakhstan who will play Timea Babos.
Spainâ€™s Feliciano Lopez retired with a side muscle injury after losing the first five games to Franceâ€™s Florent Serra on Monday
â€œI pulled my oblique on Thursday when I came here, â€œLopez said. â€œ After my practice I was playing one game with my coach and Raonic and his coach, and I just pulled something here.â€
â€œIn the beginning I felt it was nothing really serious, but day after I couldn’t play almost.
â€œI tried to rest during the weekend just to try to play today, but it was impossible.â€
Lopez said that he has to rest and hopes to be ready for Wimbledon.
