(New York) Canada's Milos Raonic retired from the US Tennis Open due to injury.
On his Twitter account, Tom Tebbutt of Tennis Canada said Raonic is still bored by the injury he had suffered in his match against Felix Auger-Aliassime at the Rogers Cup tournament earlier this month in Montreal. .
Raonic had been forced to retire before the start of the third inning.
It seems that Raonic was better and that he could have played if his first match, against the Chilean Nicolas Jarry, took place on Tuesday instead of Monday, also wrote Tebbutt.
Poland's Kamil Majchrzak will take his place on the main draw.
There are still four Canadians in the main draw of the men's singles, including Auger-Aliassime who will face Denis Shapovalov on Tuesday. The same day, Brayden Schnur must cross the iron with the French Benoit Paire while Vasek Pospisil will compete with the Russian Karen Khachanov, ranked 9e.
In the ladies, Eugenie Bouchard, 119e in the world, will face the Latvian Anastasija Sevastova, 12e seeded Monday.
