No. 4 seed Elena Dementieva has been forced to withdraw from the 2005 Bausch & Lomb Championships due to a left hip injury. The tournament, which started Monday, runs through Sunday at Amelia Island Plantation.

"I'm very sad not to be playing the Bausch & Lomb Championships this year, but unfortunately my hip doesn't feel good after the two tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami. Amelia Island is a place I always enjoy coming back to, especially since I won my first title there in 2003. It's an excellent event and I sincerely hope I can be back there again next year. I wish everyone there well," stated Dementieva.

Dementieva was scheduled to make her sixth consecutive appearance at the Bausch & Lomb Championships.
