PARIS (AP) -- John Isner of the United States has pulled out of the French Open because of illness.

The 114th-ranked Isner earned a wild card for Roland Garros by winning a qualifying event held by the U.S. Tennis Association.

Isner, who lives in Tampa, Fla., led Georgia to the 2007 NCAA tennis championship.

Also out of the French Open: No. 23 Dmitry Tursunov of Russia, who has a heel injury.

Tursunov hasn’t played on tour since losing to Andy Roddick in the third round at Key Biscayne, Fla., in late March.
