World No. 29 Milos Raonic has officially withdrawn from next week’s US Open. The Canadian told fans on his Twitter page Monday that he will return to action for his countries’ Davis Cup tie against Israel.
“After extensive deliberation with my doctors + team, I have decided to delay my tournament return until after the US Open at DC vs Israel,” said Raonic on his Twitter page.
The 20 year old has been sidelined since injuring his hip at Wimbledon.
Former champion Lleyton Hewitt (No. 188), Sam Querrey (No. 88) and Tommy Robredo (No. 40) have also withdrawn from the year’s final major. Hewitt will head back to Australia after aggravating a foot injury at the Winston-Salem event; Querrey is recovering from elbow surgery, while Robredo remains sidelined with a left thigh injury.
Sweden’s Robin Soderling, who skipped both Montreal and Cincinnati with a right elbow injury remains entered in the event.
