Stan Wawrinka announced that he will not play Canada and Cincinnati due to ongoing issues with his knee.
“After much backwards and forwards and consultations with my doctors and my team unfortunately I have decided to skip Canada and Cincinnati to be on the safe side even though I’ve been battling hard to make these events,” said Wawrinka.
“Hugely disappointing for my fans and myself that I have to make this decision, but I need to be 100 per cent confident before I resume competition till the injury that plagued me in Wimbeldon has been resolved. My team and I are doing everything possible to make this a speedy recovery.”
Since beating Andy Muray in the French Open semifinals, Wawrinka has lost his last three matches including first rounders at Queen’s and at Wimbledon to Daniil Medvedev.
The 32-year-old is the defending champion at the US Open. Will he be ready?
