Stan Wawrinka To Miss Canada And Cincinnati Due To Knee
by Staff | August 2nd, 2017, 2:08 pm

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?

Daniel Says:

Think Wawa┬┤s chance at USO is now almost zero after this news.

It would be nice if Murray manages to get a redemption Saml after his struggles lately but seems more and more that either one of Fedal will win USO.

Still a lot of contenders with dark horses chances if one of the remaining “Big 5” goes down.

SG1 Says:

Very disappointing news. It explains, at least to some degree, Rafa’s complete dusting of Stan in the RG final. I would still have expected Rafa to win but I believe there was a changeover during the RG final where Stan was pretty emotional and I suspect this was why. None of which is to say that a healthy Stan would have beaten Rafa but I do think he would have made things much more competitive.
