Srebotnik withdraws from ASB Classic

Katarina Srebotnik, who won the ASB Classic in 2005, has withdrawn from the 2009 event in Auckland because of an Achilles injury. Srebotnik was seeded fourth in the tournament, and was scheduled to play doubles with Nadia Petrova, who has also withdrawn because of viral meningitis.

When Srebotnik won in 2005, rainy weather forced her to play the semifinals and final--as well as the doubles final--on the same day. She beat Shinobu Asagoe in the final, then they won the doubles title together.
