London : Ivo Karlovic has withdrawn from Wimbledon with a foot injury.

The big-serving Croatian, who reached the quarterfinals last year, had been seeded No. 25 for the Grand Slam tournament beginning Monday.

The 6-foot-10 Karlovic has been bothered for months by an Achilles' tendon injury in his right foot and also missed the French Open.

With his withdrawal Thursday, Romania's Victor Hanescu was elevated one spot into the seedings at No. 32.
