Serena Williams Pulls Out Of Paris Open

Saturday, February 2, 2008

American Serena Williams has pulled out of the Paris Open women's tennis tournament starting on Monday because she needs dental surgery, organizers said on Friday.

The former world number one, who won the event in 2003, will be replaced as the second seed in the draw by Slovakia's Daniela Hantuchova.

"I am very disappointed to have to pull out of the tournament due to needing surgery but I hope with all my heart to play in 2009," said Williams.

Russian world number seven Ana Chakvetadze is the top seed.
