Seles, meanwhile, also asked for and was given a wild card but then decided she wasn't fit, Proust said.
Seles' agent did not immediately return a call Thursday.
The nine-time major champion is recovering from a lingering left foot injury and hasn't played a competitive match since losing in the first round at the 2003 French Open.
In an interview in February, Seles said she's thought about retiring.
``It does go through my mind, because my brain wants to be out there, playing or practicing, but my body says, 'Wait! Hold on!' I have to listen to my body,'' Seles said then. ``I'm not 18 years old anymore. Not that 30 is old, but I started so young, and my body has taken a lot of pounding.
