Tennis Roundup : A Foot Injury Forces Pat Cash to Withdraw

From Staff and Wire Reports

Pat Cash has withdrawn from the Volvo tennis tournament next week at the Los Angeles Tennis Center at UCLA because of a foot injury.

Cash, the world’s No. 6-ranked player and the 1987 Wimbledon champion, previously withdrew from the recently concluded U. S. Open when an Achilles’ tendon problem resurfaced.

Also bothered by a bad back, Cash has played only two tournaments since Wimbledon, where he lost to Boris Becker in the quarterfinals.

Cash has won $184,423 this year and ranks 23rd on the money list. His withdrawal, which will be announced today, still leaves two top 10 players in the field--No. 2 Ivan Lendl and No. 4 Andre Agassi--in addition to No. 24-ranked John McEnroe.
