Venus Williams, Davenport withdraw; Safin returns
September 24, 2003

MOSCOW (AP) -- Venus Williams and Lindsay Davenport withdrew from next week's Kremlin Cup, while Marat Safin is expected to return to action after missing nearly five months with a wrist injury.

Williams, whose half-sister was killed this month, confirmed Wednesday she won't play. She has been sidelined since Wimbledon with a stomach muscle injury.

``We fully understand the situation and have no complaints,'' tournament official Alexei Selivanenko said.

Davenport, last year's runner-up, has a left foot injury that needs surgery.

Safin first injured his left wrist at the Australian Open at the beginning of the year, and he hurt it again while practicing for a tournament in Italy in May.

The 2000 U.S. Open champion has a 12-7 record this season.
