Injuries put Gaudio, Moya out

June 14, 2005 11:01 IST
Former French Open champions Argentine Gaston Gaudio and Spaniards Carlos Moya and Albert Costa have all pulled out of Wimbledon because of injury.

World number 12 Gaudio and number 20 Moya have shoulder injuries, the All England Club said on its website on Monday as it issued the final entry lists for this month's Championships.

Gaudio, who claimed the French title in 2004, is replaced by Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia and Montenegro while Moya, who won at Roland Garros in 1998, is replaced by Czech

Bohdan Ulihrach.

The 2002 French Open champion Costa, who has slipped to 84th in the world rankings, has undergone knee surgery and will be replaced by Australian Scott Draper.

Wimbledon organisers also confirmed the withdrawals of American Mardy Fish (wrist injury) and Argentines Mariano Zabaleta (foot) and Juan Ignacio Chela.

The seedings for the June 20-July 3 grasscourt grand slam tournament will be announced on Wednesday with the draw on Thursday.
