LOS ANGELES -- Novak Djokovic of Serbia has withdrawn from next week's ATP Tour event in Los Angeles.
Tournament director Bob Kramer said Friday that Djokovic, the world's second-ranked player, withdrew from the Farmers Classic because of undisclosed personal reasons. Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic, the 2007 winner, withdrew because of a knee injury.
Joining the field is fourth-ranked Andy Murray, who received a wild card and will be seeded No. 1 when play begins Monday at the Los Angeles Tennis Center on the UCLA campus.
Bob and Mike Bryan will be seeking to break the record of 61 career doubles titles in their hometown tournament.
