Soderling pulls out of Monte Carlo Masters
Robin Soderling has joined Novak Djokovic in pulling out of Monte Carlo with a knee injury.
The Swede said he struggled with the problem in Miami, and "the pain has just escalated the more tennis I've played. My doctor has now examined my knee, and I've made a decision of not playing in Monte Carlo."
The pullouts mean David Ferrer is now the fourth seed, landing in Roger Federer's half of the draw. Andy Murray, who has not won a match since Australia, is in Nadal's half, which also features Tomas Berdych and Gael Monfils. The full draw can be seen here.
