New York: Former top-10 player Mardy Fish pulled out of the U.S. Open on Wednesday, the latest setback in his bid to make a comeback on tour after dealing with heart issues.
The U.S. Tennis Association said the 31-year-old American cited "personal reasons" for his withdrawal. The draw for the year's last Grand Slam tournament is Thursday, and play begins Monday.
Fish's Twitter feed carried this message Wednesday: "Friends, unfortunately my health won't allow me to compete this year at the US Open. Thank you for all your support."
