I emailed Jerry Milani, the media guy from Indian Wells, and he quickly responded with this simple message:

"seles has withdrawn from the tournament."

I then immediately asked if he could tell me more about the reason why she withdrew. I'll let you know what he says!

it says left foot injury on the wta site...

INDIAN WELLS, CA No. 7 seed Monica Seles has been forced to withdraw from this weeks US$2.1 million Pacific Life Open, due to a left foot injury.

Seles, ranked No. 10 in the world, has been bothered by a left foot injury she sustained over the weekend while practicing at her home in Sarasota.

Seles was due to make her seventh appearance in the Pacific Life Open. She won the title in 1992 and most recently, reached the semi-finals last year before falling to Martina Hingis. Her next scheduled event is the NASDAQ-100 Open in Miami (17 26 March).

Im really disappointed I wont be able to make it to Indian Wells this year, Seles said. Its such a wonderful tournament and I was looking forward to the Pacific Life Open after reaching the semi-finals last year.

Ive had some great matches in Indian Wells and some very fond memories, especially winning the title in 1992, said Seles.

Sarah Taylor now moves into the main draw. Anastasia Myskina (RUS #11) becomes the No. 7 seed and all seeds following Myskina move up one spot.
