WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Anna Kournikova, a semifinalist last year at Wimbledon, withdrew Monday from the tournament with torn ligaments in her right thumb, tournament referee Alan Mills said.
The 17-year-old Russian injured the thumb last Thursday at Eastbourne during a three-set victory over seven-time Wimbledon champion Steffi Graf.
Anna Kournikova injured her thumb during her match in which she defeated Steffi Graf last week.
She was seeded No. 12 and replaced in the tournament bracket by lucky loser Lilia Osterloh of the United States.
