Former Wimbledon champion Lindsay Davenport has pulled out of this year's event.
The American, who has already missed the Australian and French Opens, is still battling to recover her fitness after undergoing surgery on her right knee.

"I am extremely disappointed not to be able to play on the grass at Wimbledon this year," said Davenport.

"I really hoped I could make it back from my surgery earlier than expected and be able to play at Eastbourne and Wimbledon but it is just not possible yet.
"I am working hard and my rehab has been going well.

"Unfortunately the doctors say I am not ready to compete at the highest level yet.

"I am totally optimistic that I will be ready for the summer hardcourt season in July."
