Timea Bacsinszky to skip US Open due to injuries

Timea Bacsinszky announced through her official Facebook page that she has withdrawn from New Haven and US Open due to injuries. The Swiss player, who had reached Roland Garros semi-finals in June, suffered several physical problems in the last two months and so won't play the fourth and last Grand Slam event of the season.

'Hello everybody. Unfortunately, I was forced to pull out of New Haven and the US Open. After I had to retire during my third round match in Wimbledon, I decided to take some time to treat not only my thigh, but also my hand that has been bothering me since last year.

My thigh is now much better, but I still need to undertake a few exams for my hand. I cannot express how sad I am to announce such bad news, but my priority, at this moment, is to let my body heal completely and take all the time needed in order to do so.

Of course, I will keep you guys posted.' ALSO READ: Timea Bacsinszky reveals bad news for her fans
