US Open: Sandgren in, Nishioka out of tournament
NEW YORK — Get ready for U.S. Open Tennys.
American Tennys Sandgren was moved into the main draw for the Grand Slam tournament when Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka withdrew to continue his recovery from a knee injury.
The U.S. Tennis Association made the announcement Monday.
Nishioka was injured in March while playing in the Miami Open.
Sandgren, ranked No. 106, will be making his U.S. Open main-draw debut. The 26-year-old Tennessee native lost in the first round of the French Open in what was his first appearance in the main draw of a major.
Sandgren’s parents gave him his great-grandfather’s first name.
