New Delhi :

World Number 5 tennis player Samantha Stosur will not be coming to Delhi for the Commonwealth Games.  

The French Open Runner-Up would have been the top seed and in fact a gold medal favourite, but she wants to focus on the season-ending events of the WTA tour instead.

She joins fellow Australian Lleyton Hewitt on the Commonwealth Games pull-out list. Ironically tennis is making it's Commonwealth Games debut this year because of its popularity in India.
