Roddick, Ferrero out of French Open

Andy Roddick and former champ Juan Carlos Ferrero have pulled out of the French Open due to shoulder injuries. World number 11 Roddick had skipped this week's lead-up event in Nice to try to get better in time for the Roland Garros tournament which begins on Sunday.

But organisers this evening announced that the American, who has never made it past the fourth round in Paris, would miss the event along with 2003 champion Ferrero. Ferrero, 31, has played just two tournaments this year, both in his native Spain, as his ranking has slipped to 72.
