Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli has pulled out of the Stanford and Carlsbad WTA tournaments with a hamstring strain she sustained at the All England Club. Former Stanford standout Mallory Burdette will replace Bartoli in the main draw at Stanford, while veteran Daniela Hantuchova will replace her at Carlsbad. Bartoli's next scheduled tournament is Toronto.

"During Wimbledon I developed a strain in my hamstring which has not healed over the past two weeks," Bartoli told the Associated Press. "I have been receiving therapy and was optimistic that I would be able to participate. ... [Stanford] is one of my favorite tournaments on the circuit. Unfortunately, the injury has not completely healed and I will be unable to participate."
