Buenos Aires:

David Nalbandian has pulled out of the French Open with a left hamstring injury.

Nalbandian announced the move on Monday on his website. He said he hopes to return in time to play Wimbledon, which begins June 21. Nalbandian reached the Wimbledon final in 2002, losing to Lleyton Hewitt of Australia.

The Argentine has been slowed by the hamstring problem for a month, and has been plagued by injuries for a year. He had hip surgery a year ago and returned to the ATP tour in February, but withdrew from his first tournament back with a right-leg injury.

Nalbandian, a former No. 3 with 10 titles, reached the French Open semifinals in 2004 and 2006. This year's French Open begins on Sunday.
