The number one tennis player in the world, the Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, withdrew today due to an abdominal muscle injury from the upcoming final Masters in Turin, and he will miss the final stage of the Davis Cup.
Yesterday, Alcaraz handed over the quarter-final match of the Masters in Paris to Dane Holger Rune, and today he announced that he has to end the season and that he will have to recover for six weeks.
- Unfortunately, I will not be able to play in the final Masters and Davis Cup finals. It’s hard for me to miss these two events that are very important to me, but all I can do is be positive and focus on my recovery – Alcaraz wrote on Twitter.
Alcaraz ends the season with 57 wins and 13 losses. On September 12, he became the youngest player to take the top spot on the ATP list.
The 19-year-old Spaniard has won five titles this season, including two Masters trophies and his first Grand Slam title at the US Open.
The Spaniard will be replaced by the American Taylor Fritz at the final Masters, which starts on November 13.
