June 22, 2000

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) _ Marcelo Rios of Chile, who admits he hates to play on grass, withdrew Thursday from Wimbledon with a reported upper leg injury.

The Chilean, who was the runner-up in the 1998 Australian Open, withdrew from Wimbledon last year with a last-minute injury.

In three Wimbledon appearances, he has made the fourth round once and has been beaten twice in the first round.

The Wimbledon Championships begin Monday.
