Injured Davenport withdraws from French Open
PARIS, May 16 (Reuters) - Former world number one Lindsay Davenport has pulled out of the French Open with a back injury, organisers said today.
''I'm very disappointed ... but unfortunately, following my back injury, I haven't recovered all my physical strength,'' the 29-year-old American said in a statement.
A semi-finalist at the French Open in 1998, Davenport has been suffering from lower back strain since she lost the Wimbledon final to Venus Williams last season. She is ranked seventh in the world.
