Rafael Nadal Withdraws From the US Open

I am very sorry to announce I won’t be able to play at this year’s US Open a tournament on which I’ve played 3 consecutive finals in my last participations. I am sure you understand that it is a very tough moment for me since it is a tournament I love and where I have great memories from fans, the night matches, so many things… Not much more I can do right now, other than accept the situation and, as always in my case, work hard in order to be able to compete at the highest level once I am back.


Following a right wrist injury Nadal had to pull out of the Rogers Cup in Toronto and the masters in Cincinnati, he had won both titles last year.  He was also the winner of the US Open last year, meaning his injury will have cause him to drop 4000 points from last year's US hard court season.
