Mary Pierce has withdrawn from the 2006 Family Circle Cup because of a persistent problem with her right foot. The injury, sustained last month at the Open Gaz de France, has prevented the world No. 6 and former Family Circle champion from playing in any tournaments since then. Pierce has won the Australian and French opens and won the Family Circle Cup in 2000.
