Russia's Vera Zvonareva, the 11th seed at Roland Garros, withdrew from the main draw citing a shoulder injury.

PARIS (AP) -- Two-time Grand Slam finalist Vera Zvonareva of Russia withdrew from the French Open shortly before her first-round match Monday, citing an injured right shoulder.

The 11th-seeded Zvonareva was replaced in the draw by Sesil Karatantcheva of Kazakhstan, who lost in qualifying. Karatantcheva was to face Zvonareva's opponent, Timea Babos of Hungary.

Karatantcheva was a quarterfinalist at age 15 at Roland Garros in 2005, when she upset Venus Williams in the third round.

Zvonareva was the runner-up at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in 2010.
