Clijsters, Mirza, Urszula Radwanska, Groenefeld, Lisicki Withdraw from French Open
Clijsters posted on her Twitter page two days ago that she had resumed hitting, but despite her efforts to recover in time for the major tournament, she has opted to skip the competition.
The reigning US Open champion has been replaced in the main draw by Canada’s Stephanie Dubois.
Tournament officials at Roland Garros also announced on Friday that Sania Mirza, Urszula Radwanska, Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Sabine Lisicki have also withdrawn.
They will be replaced by Katie O’Brien, Anne Keothavong, Ekateryna Bychkova and Johanna Larsson.
