World number two Andy Murray withdraws from US Open with hip injury

Roger Federer of Switzerland reacts after taking a game from Frances Tiafoe of the United States during the U.S. Open tennis tournament Tuesday Aug. 29 2017 in New York

"I'm here at the US Open, and doesn't matter if I am No 1 or not", Nadal mentioned.

The 30-year-old from Britain revealed during a news conference at the U.S. Open site Saturday that the hip first bothered him during his semifinal loss to Stan Wawrinka at the French Open in June.

"I analyze a lot and watch a lot of videos", Zverev said. Tried resting, rehabbing, to get myself ready here.

On the men's side, the real competition comes out to play on Tuesday as Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal take to the court for the first time in this tournament. "We saw that past year, you know, when Rafa and me weren't around, somebody else stepped up".

Britain's Murray, a three-time Grand Slam champion whose first major title came in 2012 on the NY hardcourts, was uncertain about his status for the remainder of the season.

Title favourites Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will begin their US Open campaigns in NY on Tuesday.

Zverev has jumped to sixth in the world rankings after winning back-to-back US Open hardcourt titles this month at Montreal and Washington and earlier crowns this year at Rome, Munich and Montpellier.

The world No 2's withdrawal is the latest in a remarkable series of physical setbacks suffered by some of the game's top players.




"I was actually feeling that could be also quite good for me to get in some rallies, battle it out, just mentally wise to get myself in a good position". The previous three times he entered this tournament as the reigning Australian Open and Wimbledon champion, he won the U.S. Open.

US Open, the final Grand Slam of the season, starts this Monday at Flushing Meadows in NY.

'I think it should be a good tournament and I hope to be a part of it in the second week'. After making the quarters in Toronto, she won in Cincinnati, beating Simona Halep 6-1 6-0 in the final.

"One of these guys, Zverev or Dimitrov, could break through and win their first grand slam", Zagoria said.

Arguably most interesting will be the progress of Cameron Norrie, making his US Open debut after coming through qualifying and having completed his studies at Texas University, where he established himself as one of the best American college players of recent vintage. While the women's brackets have been insane with top player Serena Williams out since the spring due to her pregnancy, it has been mostly the Roger Federer show on the men's side.

Citing ongoing hip injuries, the 2012 U.S. Open champion said his injury was too unstable to win him the title again in 2017. We never played here and we are not going to play in the finals.

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are in the other half while Cilic's potential semi-final opponent Alexander Zverev is yet to make his grand slam breakthrough.

At a jampacked Court 17, three-time US Open quarter-finalist Tsonga was a class above as he hit 29 winners against the Romanian.
