Spain’s Nicolas Almagro has officially announced his withdrawal from the final Grand Slam of the season, the US Open.
The reason behind Almagro’s was not revealed, but he had also recently withdrawn from the Wimbledon Championships with a foot injury that has bothered him over several few weeks. He has clearly been hindered by the injury over the past few months, as he failed to get past his second match in Rome and lost his opener at Roland Garros to Jack Sock. While he skipped the early grass court tournaments to help his recovery, Almagro realized he simply was not going to recover full mobility in his left foot in time for the prestigious event.
Now, it appears the Spaniard is still not healthy enough to take part in the North American hard court swing, which culminates with the US Open at Flushing Meadows. The 28-year-old’s best finish at the event was reaching the round of 16 in 2012. He has made four Grand Slam quarterfinals in his career.
The US Open takes place between August 25th- September 8th, 2014.
