BALI, Indonesia - Belgium's Yanina Wickmayer has voluntarily withdrawn from the Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions following reports of the decision of the Flemish Doping Tribunal in Belgium to suspend her for 12-months, effective immediately, due to whereabouts procedural issues.

First alternate Vera Dushevina of Russia takes Wickmayer's place in the draw and meets Anabel Medina Garrigues in round-robin play on Friday night. However, Japan's Kimiko Date Krumm is already assured of advancing to the semifinals from Group C irrespective of the outcome of this match as Dushevina is ineligible to reach the semifinals (having only played one match) and due to Date Krumm's win over Medina Garrigues on Thursday.
