STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) _ Andy Roddick withdrew from next week's Stockholm Open because of a knee injury, tournament organizers said Friday.

Roddick, ranked second in the world behind Roger Federer, also missed this week's Tennis Master Series in Madrid, Spain, because of the injury.

Roddick is expected to have his knee examined next week before making a decision whether to participate in the Paris Masters, scheduled to start Nov. 1, according to the Stockholm Open's Web site.
