frnchFormer world number one Caroline Wozniacki has pulled out of the French Open because of injury.

“The 25-year-old has been struggling with an ankle problem and missed recent tournaments in Madrid and Rome, dropping to 34 in the world,” the WTA said in a statement.

Belinda Bencic of Switzerland, the world number eight, has also withdrawn because of a back injury.
