Stefanos Tsitsipas a major doubt for Paris Masters after extent of French Open injury revealed

Stefanos Tsitsipas suffered an edema in his French Open semi-final and is likely to miss the Paris Masters, it has been revealed.

The 23-year-old took Novak Djokovic all the way to a fifth set in an epic Roland Garros clash, although he required a medical time out late on and he visibly waned in the closing stages.

It has now been reported by Sport3 in Greece that MRI scans have shown an edema, swelling caused by blood leaking into nearby tissues.

The injury is set to keep him out for a short while, with him almost certain to miss Vienna and a doubt for the Paris Masters.

Although Tsitsipas gave a great account of himself in the semi-final defeat to Djokovic, he later admitted he wish he could have played his natural game sooner.

“I wish I could have figured [out] certain things earlier which, I don’t know, I felt like it was a total demolition, the fact that I tried those things in practice and tried to implement them in the match,” Stefanos Tsitsipas explained to the press afterwards.

“It was something new. I wish I wouldn’t have tried these things and tried to stay to my ordinary and basic way of feeling the ball and also trying to dictate the game.

“I think that was a huge mistake today, that I tried this for two sets in a row, then came back to my old way of doing things.”
