Jannik Sinner To Play In French Open only if 100% fit

Jannik Sinner To Play In French Open only if 100% fit

Jannik Sinner has called into question his participation in the French Open, stating he will only compete later this month if he fully heals from a hip injury that prompted him to miss Madrid and Rome. Sinner acquired the injury in Madrid and withdrew from his quarter-final against Felix Auger-Aliassime of Canada last week, before deciding to boycott the Rome tournament, which runs from May 8 to 19.

The 22-year-old, who won his first Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in January, said the injury was more serious than originally thought. Also read: Boris Becker discharged from bankruptcy court in England

“At Roland Garros, I’ll only play if I’m 100 percent; if there is any doubt, we’ll see,” Sinner told reporters. “Some injuries are preventable, while others cannot. So far, we’ve done an excellent job; last year, I played the entire season without injury, and so have I this season.”

Sinner stated that he could prioritize his health over this year’s second Grand Slam, which begins on May 26.

“Now I’ll have a period without playing… we need to see how to work from next week onwards,” Sinner said in a statement. Also read: Emma Raducanu suffers heavy first-round loss in Madrid

“Preparation for Roland Garros will clearly be suboptimal. We’ll do our best to arrive in the best possible shape to participate, but playing a Grand Slam without matches in Rome is not simple.

“The MRI revealed that something is not completely normal. But we have everything under control. If it doesn’t become completely fixed, I’ll wait a bit longer. “Taking care of your body is more important than anything else.” Also read: Jannik Sinner Withdraws From ATP 250 Event in France
