LONDON (AP)—Two-time Grand Slam winner Svetlana Kuznetsova has pulled out of Wimbledon because of an abdominal strain.

The Russian was seeded No. 26 at the All England Club. Her withdrawal moves 33rd-ranked Klara Zakopalova of the Czech Republic into the seedings at No. 32.

Kuznetsova won the U.S. Open in 2004 and the French Open in 2009. She's never progressed past the quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

The third Grand Slam of the year begins Monday.
