Djokovic out of ABN Amro with shoulder injury

BY foxsports • February 4, 2011

Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic has pulled out of next week's ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament, citing a shoulder injury.

Tournament director Richard Krajicek says Djokovic called him to say the injury will prevent the Serb from training for a week, ''let alone play high-level matches.''

Krajicek said Friday fourth-ranked Robin Soderling, the defending champion, has replaced Djokovic as the top-seeded player for the tournament that starts Monday at the Ahoy stadium in Rotterdam.

Djokovic beat Andy Murray in the Australian Open final last Sunday. Murray is due to play in Rotterdam.
