LOS ANGELES -- Wimbledon and U.S. Open champion Lleyton Hewitt, and Australian Open winner Thomas Johansson withdrew Friday from next week's Mercedes-Benz Cup.

Australian Hewitt, ranked No. 1 in the world, has a form of viral gastroenteritis. Seven-ranked Swede Johansson has a knee injury.

"Hopefully, it will just be a matter of days before Lleyton is ready to resume training and be back on tour," said his agent, Tom Ross.

German Tommy Haas is seeded first and defending champion Andre Agassi second in the tournament which begins Monday at the Los Angeles Tennis Center on the UCLA campus.

That's not so surprising because serious gastro can make you very weak (even lose several kilos in just a few days). However it's a big worry how many stomach upsets he is getting lately, I hope he is seeing a specialist.
