US Open 2017: Sandgren earns spot in Main Draw thanks to injured Yoshihito Nishioka

Tennys Sandgren was moved into the main draw for the tournament when Yoshihito Nishioka withdrew to continue his recovery from a knee injury.

Nishioka was injured in March while playing in the Miami Open.

Sandgren, ranked No. 106, will be making his U.S. Open main-draw debut. He lost in the first round of the French Open in what was his first appearance in the main draw of a Grand Slam.
