Two-time major champion Mary Pierce pulled out of France's Fed Cup semifinal against Spain because of a right shoulder injury, the French tennis federation said on its Web site Tuesday. France earlier lost its top player, former No. 1 Amelie Mauresmo, who said she wanted to concentrate on preparing for next season and a bid at winning her first Grand Slam title.
