Del Potro, Baker and Fish pull out of French Open

Seventh-ranked Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina has pulled out of the upcoming French Open because of a respiratory virus.
Del Potro said in a statement Wednesday that he has not fully recovered and is not fully fit to play.
American players Brian Baker and Mardy Fish have also pulled out.
Organizers said Baker has not recovered from a right knee operation and Fish is unfit due to heart problems. They will be replaced in Friday's draw by Joao Sousa of Portugal and Guido Pella of Argentina.
John Millan, an Australian wild-card entry, withdrew because of a shoulder injury and will be replaced by Nick Kyrgios of Australia.
U.S. Open champion Andy Murray pulled out late Tuesday because of a chronic back injury and will be replaced by a lucky loser.
