Safin misses US Open with injury

Fifth seed Marat Safin has been forced to pull out of this week's US Open in New York because of a knee injury.
The 25-year-old Russian, who won the Flushing Meadows tournament in 2000, has been bothered by tendinitis in his left knee for most of the summer.

He took six weeks off before returning to action earlier this month at Cincinnati, where he lost to Robby Ginepri in the quarter-finals.

Safin was scheduled to face Alexander Popp of Germany in the first round.

"Although Marat wanted more than anything to play and has tried whatever he could to be ready, as a professional tennis player he has had to admit his body is saying it is too soon," said a statement on Safin's personal website.

"He will return to Italy to continue treatment and ensure that his knee is fully recovered.

"It is not known how long he will be out but this time he will make sure he does not rush into returning.

"Marat still wants to play tennis and he will be back."

Re: Safin misses US Open with injury

So what'll they do?

Put a lucky loser (Phau?) in his place, or move the next-ranked player (Grosjean?) into his place in the draw as 33rd seed, and put the LL in Grosjean's place?

If it's before play has started they would usually make Grosjean the 33rd seed

Poor Safin, I'm not a big fan but just feel sorry for him. We all knew he had this problem before anyway.

Re: Safin misses US Open with injury

It's really too bad, he's one of the players i enjoy watching on the tour but his year has been very up and down, hopefully he'll be alright for the rest of the masters events later on this year.

Re: Safin misses US Open with injury

He everyone, I'm new here, but have been loving tennis since I was a little girl.

It sucks that Marat is out of the tournament, cos I enjoy the way he plays. But as he has been troubled by his knee since before Roland Garros (that's why he has been going up and down this year) it's probably wise to get it straightened out.

Would have loved to have seena repeat of the aussieopen semifinal.
