Sixth-seeded Robin Soderling withdrew from the U.S. Open before his first-round match today because of a viral infection, the U.S. Tennis Association said.
Soderling’s best result in eight previous U.S. Opens was a quarterfinal finish last year. He was also the runner-up at the French Open in both 2009 and 2010.
