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.

Federer and Nadal candidates for US Open title?

But they are, today more than ever with Novak Djokovic out of the fight due to his elbow injury and Andy Murray not going through his best moment.

If today we had to bet definitely would do for a final Federer vs Nadal if the draw puts them on opposite sides.

Djokovic out of US Open 2017?

Djokovic out of US Open 2017?

Novak Djokovic might withdrew from the US Open due to a bone bruise in his right elbow.

According to Serbian press, Serbia’s Davis Cup doctor Zdeslav Milinković commented Djokovic needs to be out of the ATP tour 6 to 12 weeks to heal his elbow.

“The most important thing is that Novak is at the moment calm and recovering successfully. The minimum will be paused for six weeks, and it is possible that the recovery will last for 12 weeks. Djokovic will announce on Wednesday a plan for the next period. He goes to therapy and can train, but without a racket.” He said.

He added that the elbow has been an issue for over a year but now has become more serious.

The 2016 US Open came to a thrilling conclusion Sunday night, as Stan Wawrinka out-dueled top-ranked Novak Djokovic 6-7 (1), 6-4, 7-5, 6-3 to claim his first title in New York.

Though Djokovic came into the match with a 19-4 head-to-head advantage and two US Open titles under his belt, Wawrinka delivered the clutch performance Sunday under the bright lights of Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Early on, it looked as if the world No. 1 might run away with the contest. Djokovic jumped out to a 4-1 lead with precise shot selection, while Wawrinka struggled to keep up.
