Matt Ebden has made the decision to skip the US Open and return home to Australia.
Ebden was entered into the US Open qualifying event but instead withdrew and flew home to Perth.
Team Emageo Managing Director Sam Maxwell said Ebden was fit and healthy but needed a break.
“After returning from a foot injury earlier in the year and three months of tournaments and travel, Matt unfortunately withdrew from the US Open due to fatigue,” Maxwell told tennis.com.au.
“It was felt that he needed a couple of extra weeks to get ready for the remainder of the season, with an eye to setting up for 2020.
“This unfortunately coincided with missing the US Open. It was a tough decision as aside from the fact that it is a Grand Slam, Matt loves playing in New York.
“Matt is fit and healthy and currently training back home in Perth. A view of the bigger picture was taken and we expect him to return to tournament play in a few weeks.”
