The list includes some former winners and runners-up of the tournament. 

The final Grand Slam of the year, the US Open 2023, is scheduled to take place from August 28 to September 10 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Centre. Carlos Alcaraz of Spain and Iga Swiatek of Poland are the reigning champions in the men’s and women’s singles respectively. 

The list of the players participating includes very exciting names, however, some players have withdrawn from the competition due to various reasons. Let us have a look at the players who will not take part in this year’s last Grand Slam. 

Nick Kyrgios 

Nick Kyrgios withdrew from the competition to concentrate on getting better from his injury. The Australian has only played once this year after undergoing knee surgery in January. Due to a wrist injury, he was also forced to withdraw from Wimbledon and ATP tournaments in Washington, Toronto, and Cincinnati.

Kyrgios reached the US Open quarter-finals last year, during which he defeated Daniil Medvedev, the then World No. 1. 

Marin Cilic 

Marin Cilic, the 2014 US Open champion, has also withdrawn from the competition. His entire season has been impacted by a knee ailment. Cilic has declared that a nagging knee issue will prevent him from taking part in this year’s American Major.

Only twice in his career will Cilic miss the US Open; the first time was in 2013, when he skipped it because of a doping ban.

Jan Lennard Struff 

Currently ranked at No. 24, the talented German Jan Lennard Struff has been playing some of the greatest tennis of his career in 2023.

Struff will unfortunately not be competing at Flushing Meadows due to a chronic hip problem that has already kept him out of action for a few weeks.

Mikael Ymer 

Sweden’s Mikael Ymer will also not be seen at this year’s US Open competition and has formally announced his retirement from professional tennis.

After failing three out-of-competition drug tests in a 12-month period, Mikael Ymer was given an 18-month suspension on Tuesday (August 22nd), post which he announced his retirement at the age of 24.

Denis Shapovalov 

Canadian Denis Shapovalov has withdrawn from the major owing to a knee injury. Shapovalov, 24, who is now ranked No. 22 in the world, captured his lone ATP title in Stockholm in 2019. He hasn’t participated since last month, when he advanced to the round of 16 at Wimbledon. 

Pablo Carreno Busta

Due to an elbow injury, Carreno Busta has only participated in four matches so far this season. Carreno Busta’s departure is not altogether unexpected, given that he failed to successfully defend his National Bank Open title in Toronto last week.

Reilly Opelka

Reilly Opelka will be absent from the US Open for a second consecutive year following an injury. His run to the fourth round at Flushing Meadows in 2021 was his greatest performance at any Grand Slam competition.

Shuai Zhang 

Shuai Zhang extends the injury list of the US Open 2023. Zhang has twice reached the quarter-finals at the Grand Slam in singles and has won two major doubles titles. Her greatest performance in singles at the US Open was reaching the fourth round the previous year.

Caty McNally

Caty McNally, who finished second in the women’s doubles division in the last two editions of US Open, withdrew from the event due to an elbow injury. As a result of her withdrawal, Madison Brengle, another American, entered the main draw.

Bianca Andreescu

Canadian international Bianca Andreescu on Saturday (July 26th) announced her withdrawal from US Open 2023 owing to her back injury. She claimed the US Open title for the first time in 2019 and since has been off colour.

Paula Badosa

Like Bianca, Spaniard Paula Badosa too pulled out of the US Open owing to an injury on Saturday. With this, Badosa has missed three out of the four major grand slams. She retired in the second round of the Wimbledon Championships as well.
