Raonic withdraws from US Open due to wrist injury
Milos Raonic has withdrawn from the U.S. Open due to a persistent wrist injury but plans to return to the Tour later in the year, the Canadian said on late on Wednesday. The world number 11 last played at the Rogers Cup in Montreal earlier this month, where he lost 6-4 6-4 to Frenchman Adrian Mannarino in the second round, before pulling out of the Western & Southern Cincinnati Open last week due to the injury. "I have tried everything in my power to rehabilitate this injury in time for the U.S. Open ... However, I am left with no option but to withdraw from the event," Raonic said on Instagram. "I have too much respect for the U.S. Open and my fellow competitors to take a spot in the draw when I know I cannot give full effort due to this injury."  
To all my friends and fans, I’m writing to provide you with an update on my injury. As you know, I’ve been dealing with a painful condition in my left wrist, which has been bothering me for many weeks now and recently forced me to withdraw from the Cincinnati Masters. I have tried everything in my power to rehabilitate this injury in time for the US Open in order to play an event that is so truly special to me. However, the pain is too great and, in consultation with my doctors, I am left with no option but to withdraw from the event. Today, I underwent a procedure to remove portions of the bone that have been causing the discomfort and preventing me from being able to play the way I normally can. I have too much respect for the US Open and my fellow competitors to take a spot in the draw when I know I cannot give full effort due to this injury. I am crushed to miss this event and a chance to play in front of the fantastic New York crowd, but I truly had no other options. I am already back in the gym starting my rehabilitation, and hope to be recovered and back on the court in a matter of a few weeks. I look forward to rejoining the tour healthier and stronger and finishing the 2017 year in proper form. Thank you for all the support. I’ll keep you updated in the days to come, and look forward to seeing you all at a match soon. Yours, Milos Raonic #TeamMilos A post shared by Milos Raonic (@mraonic) on
  The 26-year-old said he had a procedure to alleviate the condition in his left wrist and is undergoing rehabilitation to recover over the next few weeks. He hoped to return to the ATP Tour later this year. Several other top players will miss the U.S. Open due to injury with Novak Djokovic (elbow), Stan Wawrinka (knee) and Kei Nishikori all ending their season early to recover. The U.S. Open, the final grand slam of the year, is being held from Aug. 28 to Sept. 10 in New York.
