American Mardy Fish reveals that he pulled out of the US Open after receiving medical advice.

Mardy Fish has revealed that he opted to pull out of the US Open on "medical advisement".

Speculation has claimed that the 30-year-old has suffered a repeat of an accelerated heartbeat, which kept him out of action for around two months earlier this season.

Despite not confirming the reason for his withdrawal, Fish has targeted a return to the court soon.

"I was reluctant to do so, but am following medical advisement," Fish said in a statement. "I had a good summer and look forward to resuming my tournament schedule in the fall."

Fish had been due to take on Roger Federer this evening.
