Second seed Andy Murray announced his withdrawal from the US Open due to a hip injury that he suffered at the French Open in June. Murray suffered the injury during his loss to Stan Wawrinka in the French Open semifinal in June. Murray has not played since losing to Sam Querrey in the quarterfinal of Wimbledon last month. “Unfortunately, I won't be playing here this year,” said Murray, who tried to prepare for the US Open by resting after Wimbledon and speaking to a lot of specialists. “I tried obviously resting, rehabbing, to try and get myself ready here,” said Murray, who was included in the bottom half of the draw.

Murray added that he practiced in the past few days but his injury was too sore. Murray recently lost the No. 1 spot in the ATP Rankings to Rafael Nadal of Spain. With Murray out, fourth seed Alexander Zverev will be the main man in the bottom part of the draw together with fifth seed Marin Cilic and eighth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Nadal and Roger Federer will be in the upper half of the draw and could clash in the semifinal. Nadal will face Dusan Lajovic of Serbia while the third seed Federer faces Frances Tiafoe in their respective opening matches.

Bautista Agut, who lost to countryman Pablo Carreno Busta last year, will play for his second #ATP title of the season and his sixth career crown against Damir Dzumhur of Bosnia-Herzogovina, who defeated Kyle Edmund, 1-6, 7-5, 6-3, in one hour and 53 minutes to make it to his first career final.

Dzumhur made history as he became the first first player from Bosnia-Herzogovina to reach an ATP World Tour final.
