05/27 04:29 CDT The Latest: 2-time Wimbledon champ Kvitova out of French The Latest: 2-time Wimbledon champ Kvitova out of French PARIS (AP) --- The Latest on the French Open (all times local): 11:10 a.m. Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova has pulled out of the French Open ahead of her first-round match because of an injured left forearm. The No. 6-seeded Kvitova tweeted Monday that she has been dealing with pain for a few weeks. An MRI on Sunday night confirmed a Grade 2 tear, which she said "could get a lot worse" if she played. She had been due to face Sorana Cirstea on Court Suzanne Lenglen. Kvitova was replaced in the draw by Kaja Juvan, an 18-year-old from Slovenia who lost in qualifying and will be making her Grand Slam debut. Play has started at Roland Garros on Day 2 of the clay-court Grand Slam tournament. ___ 9 a.m. Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams --- owners of a combined collection of 55 Grand Slam singles titles --- are all in action on Day 2 at the French Open. Each is embarking on a bid to achieve a milestone over the next two weeks at Roland Garros. Nadal begins Monday against Yannick Hanfmann, a German qualifier who played tennis at Southern California and whose career Grand Slam record is 0-1. Nadal seeks his record-extending 12th championship in Paris, the most for any man or woman at any major tournament. Djokovic, whose first-round opponent is Hubert Hurkacz of Poland, eyes a fourth consecutive Grand Slam trophy, something only one man has managed in the past 45 years: Djokovic himself. And Williams, who starts against Vitalia Diatchenko, renews her quest for a 24th major title, which would tie Margaret Court for the most in history. Other past Grand Slam champs in action on a busy day include Stan Wawrinka and Caroline Wozniacki. ___ More AP Tennis: https://apnews.com/apf-Tennis and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
