More: Federer to Undergo Surgery

The 64th-ranked McDonald has moved into the US Open main draw after Borna Coric withdrew as he continues recovery from shoulder surgery. Coric underwent surgery on his right shoulder in New York City in May.

McDonald has played the US Open main-draw twice falling to Casper Ruud in five sets after building a two-set lead and squandering a two-set lead vs. Robin Haase in the 2018 US Open first round.

Coric saved six match points toppling fourth-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas, 7-6(2), 4-6, 6-4, 5-7, 7-6(4) en route to the  2020 US Open quarterfinals. In his last Grand Slam appearance, Coric lost to McDonald in the Australian Open second round.
