BRUSSELS, July 20 (Reuters) -- World number one Justine Henin has pulled out of the San Diego tournament starting on July 30 because of a sprained wrist, according to a statement on her Web site (www.justine-henin.be).
The Belgian will not return to court until Aug. 5. If all goes well she will compete in Toronto from Aug. 13 and in the U.S. Open, the last Grand Slam of the year.
Henin failed to reach the final of this year's Wimbledon, despite being the top seed. She was knocked out in the semi-final by France's Marion Bartoli, but did not blame injuries, saying her opponent was in "unbelievable" form.
