Nadal out of US Open

"I am very sad to announce that I am still not ready to play and have to withdraw from this year's US Open in NYC," Nadal told his fans. "I am sorry since I always found great crowds and great support, but I have to continue with my recuperation and preparation to be ready to play in the right conditions. I want to say hi and thanks to all the fans in particular to the new yorkers. I'll miss you all this year at the Open!"

The Spaniard won his first (and so far only) US Open title in 2010, completing the career Grand Slam by beating Novak Djokovic in the final. He made the final again last year but Djokovic gained his revenge in a gripping four setter.

Nadal claimed a record seventh French Open title in June but he has not competed since a second round defeat at Wimbledon to Lukas Rosol, pulling out of the Olympics due to knee tendonitis and it is the same problem which is preventing him competing at Flushing Meadows.

Roger Federer was asked about Nadal earlier this week and he expressed his concern for his great rival saying, "I was going to write him and check on him because I can't believe he's been out that long.  I thought the Olympics, okay, that's fine.  That's a personal choice. 
I thought for sure we would see him in Toronto, but now he missed Toronto and Cincinnati.  It's very surprising, because it was nothing that we heard of prior to the injury.  He played so well on clay, and then actually seemed fine at Wimbledon.  He had more time by losing earlier at Wimbledon.  So it came as big surprise now for me.  Even the Olympics, too. So I'm sad for him."
