Seles withdraws from Family Circle Cup

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Monica Seles withdrew from this week’s Family Circle Cup because of a stress fracture in her left foot.
Seles, ranked No. 12 in the world, was hurt while practicing in February. She was forced to withdraw from Indian Wells last month, and from the Nasdaq-100 Open in Florida on March 20.

“I had hoped my foot would be fully recovered in time for the Family Circle Cup, but am sorry to say it still does not feel 100 percent,” Seles said in a statement.

Seles made it to the final at the tournament in 1997, and the semifinals in 1998 and 2000.
