Citing continued injury, Nicole Vaidisova has withdrawn from both the Acura Classic and the East West Bank Classic. She will be replaced in Los Angles by Martina Hingis. Ana Ivanovic has also withdrawn from the tournament in San Diego.
Meanwhile, the field in Cincinnati shrinks more every day. The latest two players to withdraw are Meilen Tu, with a left wrist injury, and Severine Bremond, who is ill. The tournament had already lost Vaidisova, Marion Bartoli, Serena Williams, and several others.
