Félix Auger-Aliassime retired from the San Diego tournament on Thursday due to injury, organizers of the ATP 250 tournament announced.

The 21-year-old Québécois, who is currently 11th in the world rankings, was the 3rd seed in the event. After enjoying a pass in the opening round, he was due to face Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, 29th in the world, in his first game.

Dane August Holmgren, 901st in the ATP standings, will take his place in the main draw.

Auger-Aliassime took part in the Laver Cup last weekend with the World team. He bowed to the super tiebreaker in front of Italy’s Matteo Berrettini of the Europe team.

Denis Shapovalov is therefore the only Canadian competing in San Diego. Fourth seed of the tournament, Shapovalov won in two sets of 7-6 (9/7), 6-2 in his first game on Thursday in the round of 16 against American Taylor Fritz.
