Tsonga pulls out of U.S. Open with knee injury

August 20, 2018

(Reuters) – Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has withdrawn from the U.S. Open due to a long-term knee problem, the United States Tennis Association said on Monday.

Tsonga, three times a quarter-finalist at Flushing Meadows, has not played since a semi-final defeat at the Open Sud de France in February. He had knee surgery in April.

The 33-year-old, now ranked 64 in the world, will be replaced in the main draw by Australian James Duckworth.

The season’s final grand slam begins on Aug. 27 in Flushing Meadows.
