World number 2 Jannik Sinner cautioned to withdraw from Frecnh Open

World No. 2 Sinner will likely pull out of Roland Garros at the French Open on May 26, on the advice of doctors who say his hip is not fully healed.

Italian media reported today, that Doctors at a medical center in Turin have reportedly advised the Italian No. 1 he needs more recovery time.

He has been advised to show “maximum caution” with his recovery from his hip injury as he could risk aggravating it. 

The Reigning Australian Open champion Sinner has a lot on the line, becuase If he plays Paris and out-performs reigning Roland Garros champion Novak Djokovic, he can surpass the Serbian superstar for the world No. 1 ranking, but playing may cause more risk than previously thought.

Sinner, who is defending just 45 ranking points in Paris, could rise to world No. 1 even if he doesn’t play Roland Garros depending upon Djokovic’s results.

However, in withdrawing from Rome, Sinner made it clear he would not play Roland Garros if he’s not fully fit.

Miami Open champion Sinner said he initially felt the hip issue during the Monte-Carlo semifinals against Stefanos Tsitsipas. Playing Madrid, Sinner felt the pain in his hip flare up again and conceded a walkover to Felix Auger-Aliassime in the quarterfinals.

Sinner has posted a 28-2 record this season with his lone losses coming to Carlos Alcaraz in the Indian Wells semifinals and to Tsitsipas in the Monte-Carlo semifinals.
