It is very sad to write about Rafael Nadal pulling out of the 2014 US Open.
The defending champion and great tennis player from Spain won't be able to play in New York this year because of a wrist injury.
"I am very sorry to announce I won’t be able to play at this year’s US Open, a tournament on which I’ve played three consecutive finals in my last participations," the world No. 2 said in a statement. "I am sure you understand that it is a very tough moment for me since it is a tournament I love and where I have great memories from fans, the night matches, so many things. … Not much more I can do right now, other than accept the situation and, as always in my case, work hard in order to be able to compete at the highest level once I am back."
