NEW YORK (AP) -- Big-serving Dutchman Richard Krajicek and last
year's French Open finalist Magnus Norman have withdrawn from the
U.S. Open because of injuries.
Krajicek, 29, has been sidelined for several months with an
elbow injury. He is ranked 93rd in the ATP Entry System after
skipping the first half of the 2001 season.
Norman, 25, is out with a persistent hip injury.
The 24th-ranked Swede, who reached the semifinals at Bastad in
July, will undergo surgery next week that will sideline him for the
rest of the season.
Markus Hipfl of Austria and Mariano Zabaleta of Argentina will
replace Norman and Krajicek in the main draw.
The U.S. Open starts Aug. 27.
