Dimitrov, who was the No 3 seed, was diagnosed with flu and sinus infection.

"We will miss having Grigor as a part of this year's tournament, but his health is priority number one," said Jeff Newman, tournament director. "We hope he gets better quickly and wish him great success for the rest of the year."

Monfils withdraws for the second straight week because of a knee injury.
