The Frenchwoman, who is currently ranked No. 20, decided Thursday to scratch her last two tournaments of the season, at Linz and Luxembourg.
Mauresmo said on her Web site: "Since I came back from the U.S. Open, I've been trying to practice but I can't find again the desire to come back to competition. I don't want to rush or force things. (I will take) some time to think before making a decision regarding the remainder of my career."
The 30-year-old Mauresmo won two Grand Slam titles in 2006, at the Australian Open and Wimbledon.
