Former US world number one Lindsay Davenport, as well as compatriots Meilen Tu and Meghann Shaughnessy, on Tuesday pulled out of the French Open starting on May 25, the French Tennis Federation said.
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 and Shaughnessy has a left knee injury.
They will be replaced in the women's draw by Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak, Taiwan's Su-Wei Hsieh and Colombia's Catalina Castano.
The Federation also confirmed the absence of US star Andy Roddick, announced on Monday by his brother, with a shoulder injury.
Argentine Guillermo Coria, a 2004 Roland Garros finalist, replaces him.
