London: Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal has suffered a right wrist injury less than a month before the start of the U.S. Open in New York, and has been ruled out of action for two to three weeks.

Nadal hurt his wrist while training on Tuesday, reports the BBC.

Nadal, 28, said that he was extremely disappointed not to be defending his titles in Toronto and Cincinnati as he targets a return to fitness in time for the U.S. Open, which starts on August 25.

Nadal has not competed since his shock defeat by Australian teenager Nick Kyrgios in the fourth round at Wimbledon on July 1 this year. The defence of his crowns in Toronto and Cincinnati were key hard-court season warm-ups ahead of the U.S. Open, where Nadal will go in search of a 15th career Grand Slam crown.
