Former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki pulled out of the French Open because of an injured right ankle, the WTA said Tuesday.

The 34th-ranked Wozniacki hasn’t played since she lost her second match at the Miami Open in March.

Her participation at Roland Garros was already in doubt after she withdrew from clay-court tournaments in Madrid and Rome because of the injury she suffered during practice.

Eighth-ranked Belinda Bencic of Switzerland also withdrew after dealing with a back injury since March.

The draw for the French Open is on Friday. Play will begin Sunday.

GENEVA OPEN: Top-seeded Stan Wawrinka cruised past Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain 6-1, 6-1 in the second round.

PREMIER LEAGUE: Manchester United beat Bournemouth 3-1 in a game hastily rescheduled because of a bomb scare, sealing fifth place and a spot in the Europa League group stage.

Wayne Rooney scored one goal and played a part in two others as host United gained some momentum going into the FA Cup final.

The original game Sunday was called off after Old Trafford was evacuated because a fake bomb was discovered in a toilet of one of the stands. Police said the device was left behind following a security training exercise.


NFL: Former NFL tackle and congressman Jon Runyan was hired as vice president of policy and rules administration, the league said.

Runyan will oversee club and game-related initiatives related to players. He will serve as Commissioner Roger Goodell’s designee for on-field discipline as agreed upon by the NFL and players’ union.


PREAKNESS STAKES: Gun Runner, the third-place finisher in the Kentucky Derby, will skip the Preakness, leaving a likely field of 11 for the middle leg of the Triple Crown on Saturday at Pimlico.

MEMBERSHIP POLICY: Royal Troon Golf Club, the host of this year’s British Open, is consulting members on whether its male-only membership policy should end.

Troon said it has written to its 800 members “seeking views on the issue of the admission of women members.”

Troon official Martin Cheyne said “we care very much for the reputation of Royal Troon Golf Club and it is important that the club, much like the wider game, reflects the modern society in which we exist.”
