Svetlana Kuznetsova, Eugenie Bouchard and Sara Errani have been forced to withdraw from next week's Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships with injuries.WTA World No.8 Svetlana Kuznetsova, Canada's Eugenie Bouchard and Italian Sara Errani have all been forced to withdraw from next week's Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships through injury.

Kuznetsova, who recently pulled out of the Qatar Total Open, citing an abdominal injury, issued a statement confirming that the injury would take longer than expected to heal.

"The Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships is one of the best tournaments in the world," said the 2009 Dubai runner-up. "I am therefore sad to announce that I will have to miss this event this year. My doctors advised me that I need at least another week to rest my abdominal injury in order for a full recovery. I look forward to competing on the court very soon. I extend my best wishes to the organizers."

Bouchard is also suffering from an abdominal injury and Errani, the reigning champion in Dubai, has withdrawn with a right adductor issue.
