Bacsinszky, who will also miss this month's
Connecticut Open in New Haven, was carrying a thigh injury
during Wimbledon last month but said on Wednesday she had also
been troubled by her hand since last year.
"Unfortunately, I was forced to pull out of New Haven and the
U.S. Open," Bacsinszky, who reached the French Open semi-finals
earlier this year, said on her Instagram account.
"My thigh is now much better, but I still need to undertake a
few exams for my hand. I cannot express how sad I am to announce
such bad news, but my priority... is to let my body heal
completely and take all the time needed in order to do so."
The U.S. Open runs from Aug. 28 to Sept. 10 at Flushing Meadows,
