2016.09.01 12:22

 Top seed Novak Djokovic reached round three of the US Open without hitting a ball as Jiri Vesely withdrew before their second-round match.

The Czech, 23, said he was "very, very disappointed" to pull out with inflammation of his left forearm.

Defending champion Djokovic, who has been struggling with a wrist injury, gets three days off before facing Guido Pella or Mikhail Youzhny on Friday.

Fourth seed Rafael Nadal plays Italys Andreas Seppi later on Wednesday.
