Carlos Alcaraz, the top-ranked tennis player in the world, said on Saturday that he will be sidelined for the remainder of the season due to an abdominal muscle rupture.
“After my withdrawal yesterday and having been evaluated by my medical team,@drlopezmartinez and@JuanjoMoreno_M, unfortunately this is the result of my injury: an internal oblique muscle tear in the left abdominal wall with an estimated recovery time of six weeks.” Alcaraz tweeted.
The 19-year-old Alcaraz claimed he pulled out of the ATP Finals and the Davis Cup Finals. All he could do, he wrote, was to be upbeat and concentrate on his rehabilitation. “It is terrible and painful for me to miss these two events, which are so important to me.
The young Spanish prodigy won the men’s singles match at the 2022 US Open to win his first Grand Slam title.
