Baghdatis suffered the knee injury in s-Hertogenbosch on Wednesday

Former semi-finalist Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus has withdrawn from Wimbledon with a knee injury.

The 24-year-old, who lost to Rafael Nadal in the 2006 semis, picked up the injury during his match against Raemon Sluiter in the Netherlands this week.

Baghdatis, the world number 95, will be replaced in the Wimbledon draw by Karol Beck of Slovakia.

Gael Monfils was forced to withdraw from Wimbledon on Thursday with a wrist injury sustained at Queen's Club.

The Frenchman, seeded number 14 at the All England Club, pulled out of last week's Aegon Championships after his second-round victory over Andrey Golubev.
