Top-ranked Roger Federer withdrew from the Swiss Indoors tournament after hurting his left thigh while warming up Tuesday. The initial diagnosis was a torn muscle, tournament spokesman Juerg Vogel said. Lucky loser Bohdan Ulihrach took Federer's place in the draw and was to face Luis Horna of Peru in the first round later Tuesday.
