Jannik Sinner has won 25 out of the 27 matches he has played in 2024.

Italian tennis star Jannik Sinner has opted out of the 2024 Rome Masters due to a hip injury he sustained during the Madrid Open.

Jannik Sinner withdrew his participation from the ATP 1000 Madrid Open last week in the quarterfinals, where he was set to face Canada’s Felix Auger Aliassime. However, due to a flaring hip issue, the 2024 Australian Open champion decided to withdraw.

The 22-year-old was expected to participate in the Rome Masters in front of his home audience; nevertheless, the Italian has announced that he won’t be playing in the ATP 1000 event. He took to social media and penned a heartfelt note to his supporters.

He announced on X (formerly Twitter): “It is not easy to write this message but after speaking again with the doctors and specialists about my hip problems I have to announce that unfortunately I will not be able to play in Rome. Obviously, I’m very sad that I didn’t recover, it being one of my favourite tournaments ever.”

Jannik Sinner stated that he wanted to play at the Italian Open. However, he affirmed that he will still visit the Rome Masters venue, Foro Italico, to be a part of the tournament. The 22-year-old concluded his message by stating that he’s looking forward to playing at the French Open, which is scheduled to start on May 20.

Sinner wrote further, “I couldn’t wait to come back and play at home in front of the Italian crowd. I will still come to Rome for a few days and stop by the Foro Italico. Thank you for your messages of support which I appreciate very much! Now I will work with my team and doctors to be ready for Roland Garros. See you soon.”

The Italian was having a stellar campaign on the ATP tour this season. Sinner defeated the likes of Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev to win his first Grand Slam at the Rod Laver Arena. Later, he continued his form by winning the ATP Rotterdam and the Miami Open.

Apart from Jannik Sinner, ATP World No. 3 Carlos Alcaraz has also withdrawn from the Rome Masters. Alcaraz, who turned 21 on May 5, has been suffering from recurring forearm issues. The Spaniard missed the Monte Carlo Masters and the Barcelona Open due to the same issue.

He returned at the Madrid Open but suffered a loss against Andrey Rublev in the quarterfinals. Additionally, Daniil Medvedev’s participation in the Rome Masters is also uncertain, as he was forced to retire against Jiri Lehecka in the 2024 Madrid Open quarterfinal.
