Steve Darcis, the world number 135 who stunned Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon, pulled out of the tournament with a shoulder injury on Wednesday.
"We have just received confirmation that Steve Darcis has withdrawn from his second round match against Lukasz Kubot with a right shoulder injury," said a statement from the organisers.
Earlier in the day, his coach admitted that Darcis, who suffered the injury when he fell over against Nadal, would be forced out.
"There is a 99% chance that Steve will not play his second round match," his coach Reginald Willems told sudinfo.be.
