Nadia Petrova, suffering with a torn quad muscle, has withdrawn from the Bausch and* Lomb Championships, and will be replaced by Amelie Mauresmo. Petrova has also withdrawn from the Family Circle Cup. Perhaps Mauresmo would like to play in Charleston, too? She was entered last year, but had to withdraw because of her illness. Petrova won the Family Circle Cup in 2006, but did not enter in 2007. She won in Amelie Island in 2006 and was the finalist in 2007.
