Srebotnik pulls out of ASB Classic

6:43 am on 31 December 2008

The Slovenian tennis player Katarina Srebotnik has been forced out of next week's ASB tennis classic in Auckland because of injury.

The 20th ranked Srebotnik, who was to have been the fourth seed, has an ankle injury.

It means last summer's beaten finalist Aravane Rezai now makes the main draw.
