Stan Wawrinka Out Of Two Tournaments With Knee Injury

The World No. 4 Stan Wawrinka will have at least a two week delay in his feature in the US Open, as he announced on Wednesday that he is pulling out of the Rodgers Cup and the Western and Southern Cup due to a knee injury.

Wawrinka, whose last impressive performance was at the French Open where he reached the final and after then has not won a single Match, even got knocked out by Daniil Medvedev in the opening round of Wimbledon.

"After much backwards and forwards and consultations with my doctors and my team, unfortunately I have decided to skip Canada and Cincinnati to be on the safe side, even though I've been battling hard to make these events," Wawrinka said in a statement released through his management company.

"Hugely disappointing for my fans and myself that I have to make this decision, but I need to be 100 percent confident before I resume competition till the injury that plagued me in Wimbledon has been resolved. My team and I are doing everything possible to make this a speedy recovery."

Wawrinka, who has not lost, in the quarter finals of New York Open in the past four years is also known to always struggle during the Summer Swing, mist especially, the US open.

"Stan has always been loyal to our tournament and we're obviously disappointed he won't be here this year," Rogers Cup director Eugène Lapierre said in a statement. "Stan is one of the best players in the world and we wish him a quick recovery and best of luck for the rest of the season."
