    The world number eight Belinda Bencic has pulled out of the upcoming French Open with a back injury since March.

    The 19-year-old has struggled with the complaint for a couple of weeks, which has forced her to miss host of tournaments.

    It has been confirmed that the swiss star will also be ruled out from Roland Garros, meaning, she will be replaced by the American Lauren Davis in the main draw.

    The French Open gets under way on Sunday.

    Bencic is expected to return to the grass season in Eastbourne.
