Ana Ivanovic withdrew from the Madrid Open because of a knee injury, but expects to be fit in time to defend her French Open title.

The seventh-ranked Serb is struggling with inflammation in her right knee. Doctors have ordered her not to play for a week.

Ivanovic said in a statement Friday that the knee has bothered her since a Fed Cup match last month. She said, “It’s become more painful with each match, so I decided to go and see a specialist in Munich.”

Ivanovic says there is “no danger” of her missing the French Open, which begins May 24.
