PARIS (AP) -- Chanda Rubin, who twice reached the quarterfinals of the French Open, pulled out of the Grand Slam event on Tuesday because of a knee injury.

She will be replaced in the women's singles draw by fellow American Alexandra Stevenson.

The $10 million French Open, the only Grand Slam tournament on clay, starts Monday.

Rubin is ranked No. 22 by the WTA. She reached the quarterfinals at Roland Garros last year and in 1995.

Australia's Jason Stoltenberg also withdrew but did not give a reason, organizers said. He is ranked 84th in the ATP Champions Race. Stoltenberg will be replaced by Argentina's Jose Acasuso, who is 81st.
