Gustavo Kuerten withdrew Tuesday from next week's Nasdaq-100 Open, citing hip problems. The three-time French Open champion has played only 10 ATP Tour events since major hip surgery in September 2004. He received a wild card to play at Key Biscayne. "I still don't feel ready to compete at a high level," Kuerten said.
