Nadal released this statement on the US Open website, via Yahoo:

“I am very sorry to announce I won’t be able to play at this year’s U.S. Open, a tournament on which I’ve played three consecutive finals in my last participations. … I am sure you understand that it is a very tough moment for me since it is a tournament I love and where I have great memories from fans, the night matches, so many things… Not much more I can do right now, other than accept the situation and, as always in my case, work hard in order to be able to compete at the highest level once I am back.”

With Nadal’s withdrawal, Roger Federer will slide into the #2 rank. Nadal injured his wrist training back in Mallorca in preparation for the Rogers Cup in Toronto.
