Who Is Not Here

Maria Sharapova surprisingly withdrew the day before the draw, leaving the field without a four-time Grand Slam champion and TV broadcasters without one of the sport's top stars. Even more surprising: Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli isn't entered in the U.S. Open, either, and it's because she suddenly announced her retirement this month at age 28. Also absent is Mardy Fish, who used to be ranked in the top 10 and was a quarterfinalist in New York two years ago, but hasn't played in a Grand Slam tournament in 2013 as he tries to come back from a heart issue.
