Sinner Admits Recent Injury Will Influence Also French Open Preparation

by Zachary Wimer

Jannik Sinner injured his hip at the worst possible time, and he admitted that it would impact his Roland Garros in one way or another.

Grand Slams aren't played every day; in fact, they are played only four times each year. That's what makes them so special, and it's why most players focus on those four events primarily, at least when it's around that time of the year.

The next Grand Slam is the Roland Garros, and it's pretty close, which is why Sinner's recent injury is so problematic. It's bad enough for him to have had to withdraw from the Italian Open, and it's actually bad enough that it will impact his Roland Garros preparation.

Sinner confirmed it in the press conference after announcing his withdrawal from the ATP Masters 1000 tournament in Rome.

It's likely not bad enough to keep him out of the French Open because he didn't really seem concerned with that, but it will severely limit his preparation for the event, meaning he won't be playing as many matches as he hoped before it.

"We have to see from next week onwards how to work on it. We have to decide it. The preparation for Paris will not be optimal because we are tight. My team and I will give our best to get to a good level to compete."

Obviously, that's not ideal and will impact him at the event, but it doesn't mean that it will impact his results as well. It doesn't mean that it would prevent him from winning the event, but it does make it less likely.

Ultimately, he's one of the best players in the world, and he can play himself into form at the event. Time will tell what happens in the coming weeks but he surely would have liked to avoid this injury.
