Rubin, Likhovtseva, Maleeva withdraw from Birmingham

Three players withdraw from Wimbledon warmupJune 5, 2005

BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) -- Magdalena Maleeva, Chanda Rubin and Elena Likhovtseva withdrew from the DFS Classic, a grass-court warmup for Wimbledon that starts Monday.

Rubin's withdrawal opened a place for Maria Sharapova, who originally planned to skip the event. The Russian won the tournament last year before capturing Wimbledon.

Maleeva, who won the DFS Classic two years ago, has had shoulder trouble and said she needed rest. Rubin, a two-time Eastbourne champion, has problems with her left knee. The American was once ranked sixth but has slipped to 125th. Likhovtseva aggravated a thigh injury at the French Open, where she reached the semifinals..
