Sinner To Undergo Rehab For Hip Injury At Football Club Juventus' Medical Centre

Sinner To Undergo Rehab For Hip Injury At Football Club Juventus' Medical Centre

by Nurein Ahmed

Jannik Sinner is racing against time to recover and compete at Roland Garros, and he is utilizing every possible means to make himself available in Paris later this month.

The second Grand Slam of 2024 will begin on May 26th, where Sinner will be the second seed in a major tournament for the first time. He is expected to be among the contenders this year even though he has not won a big title on clay.

But Sinner's involvement in the clay major will depend on how fast he recovers from a hip injury he sustained while competing at the Madrid Open two weeks ago.

The Italian was forced to withdraw from the tournament ahead of his quarterfinal match and has since followed suit by withdrawing from the Italian Open in Rome.

Sinner is clearly not trying to throw caution to the wind, as his recent comments about the injury suggest. Roger Federer's ex-coach, Ivan Ljubicic, also warned the 22-year-old that the injury should "not be underestimated."

It turns out Sinner will not lack facilities or personnel to get ready for Roland Garros. According to the Italian sports newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Australian Open champion has traveled to Turin and is undergoing rehab at the Juventus football club's medical center, the J|Medical.

The state-of-the-art healthcare facilities at the Italian football club are the same ones that were previously used by their former player, one of the world's best footballers, Cristiano Ronaldo, while he was recovering from injuries.

If Sinner recovers ahead of schedule and makes the trip to Paris, he will head there having played two warm-up tournaments on clay. He was beaten by Stefanos Tsitsipas in Monte Carlo, one of only two defeats he has suffered in the current season, and then reached the last eight of the Madrid Open.
