Davenport pulls out of Eastbourne but expects to compete at Wimbledon

Former Wimbledon champion Lindsay Davenport withdrew from the Eastbourne International on Tuesday with a knee injury.

Davenport, who was set to play in her first event since defaulting from her semifinal match against Maria Sharapova at Amelia Island in April, won the Eastbourne title in 2001, and Wimbledon in 1999.

"I am very disappointed to be unable to compete here but I unfortunately injured my right knee in practice over the weekend and was unable to recover in time for today's match," Davenport said in a brief statement released by Eastbourne organizers. "I look forward to it getting better and resting and, of course, being able to play next week at Wimbledon."
