Croatia's Mario Ancic pulled out of the U.S. Open due to a right shoulder injury, tournament organisers confirmed on Monday.

The 23-year-old, who had only just returned after a six-month break because of glandular fever, had been due to face third seed Novak Djokovic in the first round.

Ancic, who was ranked a career-high seventh in July 2006, returned at the Montreal Masters earlier this month and played events in Cincinnati and New Haven.

His was replaced in the draw by Dutchman Robin Haase, a lucky loser.
