WASHINGTON (AP)—Wimbledon semifinalist Grigor Dimitrov pulled out of the Citi Open hard-court tournament, citing the flu and a sinus infection.

Dimitrov's withdrawal was announced Sunday, a day before play begins.

The ninth-ranked Dimitrov would have been seeded third at the tournament, part of the North American circuit of tuneup events ahead of the U.S. Open.

Eugenie Bouchard, the women's runner-up at Wimbledon, withdrew from the Citi Open earlier.
