Wawrinka out of US Open and will miss the rest of 2017 season

Wawrinka out of US Open and will miss the rest of 2017 season

Earlier today, we told you that Stan Wawrinka was out of the Rogers Cup, well now we have a worst news to give all of you... The US Open 2016 champion wn't return this year to defend his crow at Flushing Meadows.

Wawrinka chose long-term health over a U.S. Open title defense and pulled out of the tournament because of an injured knee, saying he decided to undergo a "medical intervention" and sit out the rest of 2017.

He did not provide any specifics about the injury or treatment.

"This was the only solution to make sure I will be able to compete at the top level for many more years," Wawrinka said in a statement through his agency.

He joins Novak Djokovic, in calling it quits for this season because of injury.

The fourth-ranked Wawrinka added last year's title to his 2014 Australian Open and 2015 French Open championships. He got back to the finals in Paris in June, losing to Rafael Nadal, but was eliminated by Daniil Medvedev in the first round at Wimbledon.

The 32-year-old Swiss was clearly bothered by his left knee then, icing it during changeovers. He said after the defeat the knee had been a problem on and off all season and he needed to figure out what was wrong.

Wawrinka finishes with a 26-11 record with just one title this season. He says he is looking toward his recovery and playing in 2018.

Wawrinka suffers shock exit to Medvedev at Wimbledon

Wawrinka suffers shock exit to Medvedev at Wimbledon

Stan Wawrinka was upset 6-4 3-6 6-4 6-1 by Daniil Medvedev in the first round of Wimbledon.

This was Medvedev's was only the third time he had set foot in the main draw of a Grand Slam event and he was hoping against hope that it might just earn him that first Grand Slam win.

“At 5-1 [in the fourth set], already I started thinking what I have to do after the match if I win it,” Medvedev said. “And I did it because it’s my first Grand Slam win, it’s at Wimbledon – my favourite tournament – I had to kiss the grass, I guess. Even though people do it when they win the slam, I did it when I win my first match at a slam.”

“I had a really great grass court season,” he explained, “and I knew that Stan had some problems at Queen’s, he had only played on match on grass. I knew that I would have the chance if I played good and third and first set, I think I was playing amazing.”

In the first set Medvedev put every ounce of strength he could muster behind that forehand while the second headed to Switzerland as Wawrinka nipped to a 3-0 and two-break lead and never looked back. But then it all got very tricky.

In the third set Wawrinka’s backhand let him down as he served to stay in the set. Facing set point, he pulled the trigger and could do nothing as his shot sailed wide of the side line.
Medvedev was 2-1 up and growing in confidence by the minute. That was more than enough for Wawrinka: the fourth set took 26 minutes of miscues from the Swiss and jangling nerves conquered by the Russian.

Medvedev will next face Ruben Bemelmans on Wednesday.

Stan Wawrinka talks to the media before The Championships

Q. It looks like when you come to a Grand Slam, your attitude always changes. In the other tournaments you have some ups and downs. When Grand Slams come, you are always fighting for the title. Is it because it's a different feeling? A question of motivation? Maybe because best-of-five suits more your game?
STAN WAWRINKA: No, not for sure it's a question of motivation. I will not be playing as well if I wasn't motivated than the other tournaments. For me, there's many few reasons.

Again, I'm always trying to improve, be at my top in any tournament. Best feeling in tennis is to win trophy. Doesn't matter which tournaments you play, you always look and try for that.
