Defending US Open Champion Withdraws

INTERNATIONAL: Austria's Dominic Thiem will not defend his US Open title. The world number six withdrew from the tournament late on Wednesday, after injuring his wrist. Thiem suffered the wrist injury back in June at the Mallorca Open. It also meant he missed out on Wimbledon.

He took to Twitter on Wednesday night to say that his wrist wasn’t much better and that he’d miss the rest of the 2021 season. This is the second year running that the defending champion at Flushing Meadows has withdrawn from the event. Last year it was Rafael Nadal who pulled out because of the pandemic. The US Open runs from the 30th of August to the 12th of September.
