Maria Sharapova has withdrawn from the International Women's Open in Eastbourne, one of the key Wimbledon warm-up tournaments. It is unknown whether she will play in Birmingham. Nicole Vaidisova is taking her place in the Eastbourne draw.
Agnieszka Radwanska, meanwhile, has withdrawn from the DFS Classic in Birmingham, citing a need to rest and concern about her arm. Like Jankovic, Radwanska complained of arm injury because of the heavy balls at the French Open.
