SAN DIEGO — American Mnica Seles, a former world No. 1, pulled out of the $775,000 Acura Classic due to an inflammation of the arch in her right foot, tournament officials announced Tuesday.
Seles, 28, returned home to rest and recover after being upset by compatriot Lisa Raymond in the quarterfinals at last week’s Stanford hardcourt event.
The leader among active WTA players with 53 career titles, Seles has never won this tournament, finishing as the runner-up in 1991, 1997, 2000 and 2001.
Seles is expected to compete in next week’s $585,000 J.P. Morgan Chase Open at Los Angeles.
