PARIS (Reuters) - American Serena Williams has pulled out of the Paris Open women's tennis tournament starting on Monday because she needs dental surgery, organizers said on Friday.
The former world number one, who won the event in 2003, will be replaced as the second seed in the draw by Slovakia's Daniela Hantuchova.
