KITZBUEHEL, Austria (AP) - Top-seeded Nikolay Davydenko has pulled out of the Austrian Open because of a muscle strain in his left leg.

Paul Capdeville of Chile will replace the 10th-ranked Russian for Tuesday's first-round match against Diego Junqueira of Argentina.

Last week, Davydenko withdrew from the Madrid Open citing a left leg injury.

He has won the Austrian Open three times in the last four years, when it was known as the Hypo Group tournament.
