The injury that has been troubling Nadal, the 20-time Grand Slam winner, and forced him to withdraw from the Cincinnati Masters and Canadian Open last week. With the announcement, Nadal has become a third big draw to pull out from the US Open after Roger Federer and defending champions Dominic Thiem.
