Safin out of Roland Garros

Paris: Former US Open champion Marat Safin has pulled out of next week’s French Open with a wrist injury, organisers announced Monday.

Safin’s problem failed to respond to several weeks’ rest and his withdrawal from the 2nd Grand Slam of the season marks a torrid season for the Russian who has been dogged by injury since the Australian Open in January.
