last-minute decision Saturday night to withdraw from the 2018 French Open, which begins the next day, in order to take care of his not-yet fully recovered shoulder.

Lu made the decision after a lengthy discussion with his team and doctors from the Association of Tennis Professionals, making it the second time that he has backed out of a major tennis tournament due to his shoulder injury.

Earlier this January, he withdrew from the Australian Open to give his shoulder more time to heal.

However, it seems that despite four months of recovery, his participation in a Challenger event in South Korea did enough damage on his right shoulder to where he can no longer compete in the French Open that he has been preparing for.
