Heineken Open field weakened

Two more withdrawals have weakened the field for next week's Heineken Open men's tennis tournament in Auckland.

The 2005 champion Fernando Gonzalez of Chile and Spaniard Tommy Robredo have joined fourth seed Juan Monaco of Argentina in pulling out of next week's ATP event.

A virus is behind Gonzalez's no-show while injury has caused Robredo to withdraw.
