Defending champion Dominic Thiem announced on social media on Wednesday the “tough decision” to pull out of this month’s US Open after failing to recover sufficiently from a wrist injury he picked up in Mallorca in June. The 27-year-old Austrian said he had been making a good recovery before feeling renewed pain last week.
