Paris - Two-time Grand Slam finalist Vera Zvonareva of Russia withdrew from the French Open shortly before her first round match on Monday, citing an injured right shoulder.

The 11th-seeded Zvonareva was replaced in the draw by Sesil Karatantcheva of Kazakhstan, who lost in qualifying. Karatantcheva was to face Zvonareva's opponent, Timea Babos of Hungary.

Karatantcheva was a quarter-finalist at age 15 at Roland Garros in 2005, when she upset Venus Williams in the third round.

Zvonareva was the runner-up at Wimbledon and the US Open in 2010.
