Kvitova pulls out of Qatar Open

Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova will not play in next week's Qatar Open due to an unspecified injury.

The world No. 2 Kvitova was slated to be the second seed in Doha, behind world No. 1 and Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka.

Action in Doha will commence Monday. Russian Vera Zvonareva beat former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki in last year's finale.
