‘My Roland Garros injury came back’ – Stefanos Tsitsipas reveals he may miss ATP Finals

Stefanos Tsitsipas says his ATP Finals participation is in doubt after he suffered a recurrence of his Roland Garros injury.

Tsitsipas mounted a valiant comeback against Novak Djokovic in the French Open semi-final before succumbing to the Serb and an edema in his leg in the fifth set.

He took a week off to recover and hoped to be over it in time for the Paris Masters, but he claimed it reared its head again during his second-round loss to Ugo Humbert.

“Right now, I don’t know. I really don’t know,” Tsitsipas said when asked if he will play London later this month, where he is the defending champion.

“During the second set my Roland Garros injury came back, and it wasn’t as bad as at the French Open, but it kind of had me on the edge of things, and I wasn’t sure if that’s good for me to be out there.

“But that’s not an excuse, for sure. I still fought and gave my best out there, despite this thing that I had on the court. I’m sad, for sure.”

The injury was also confirmed by Tsitsipas’ planned doubles partner at the Paris Masters, Aisam ul Haq Quereshi.

“Unfortunately Stefanos Tsitsipas had to pull out from our doubles match at the Rolex Paris Masters due to an injury,” Qureshi said on social media.

“Wishing him a very speedy recovery and all the best for the rest of the season.”
