Former world number one Lindsay Davenport has decided not to compete at Rolland Garros this year.

Davenport, 31 and a mother since last June, said she had pulled out for "personal reasons."

Tu says she is "insufficiently recovered" from a hip complaint, while Shaughnessy is suffering from a left knee injury.

The trio will be replaced in the women's draw by Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak, Taiwan's Su-Wei Hsieh and Colombia's Catalina Castano.

Meanwhile, Argentine Guillermo Coria, the 2004 Roland Garros runner-up, will replace injured Andy Roddick in the men's draw.
