By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Sixth-seeded Robin Soderling withdrew from the U.S. Open because of illness.

The Swede was scheduled to face qualifier Louk Sorensen in the first round Wednesday. "Lucky loser" Rogerio Dutra da Silva of Brazil took his spot.

Soderling had not played since withdrawing from Montreal with a wrist injury in early August. He won at Bastad in his last tournament in mid-July.

The two-time French Open runner-up reached the quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows last year to equal his best result.

Sorensen, from Ireland, is ranked 618th. Dutra da Silva is ranked 114th.
