Jannik Sinner Addresses Concern After Hard-Fought Win At Madrid Open

After a challenging three-set match at the 2024 Madrid Open, Jannik Sinner discussed his hip problem, which had worsened during his earlier game.

In a match against Pavel Kotov, Italian tennis player Jannik Sinner began to feel hip pain but managed to win in two sets, which was fortunate since he preferred not to overexert himself due to the discomfort.

His aim was to conclude his fourth-round match quickly as well, but that plan was thwarted as Karen Khachanov delivered a compelling performance, challenging the 22-year-old.

Despite losing the first set, Sinner made a remarkable comeback to secure a three-set victory, during which he later discussed his ongoing hip issue.

Following his third-round victory, Sinner acknowledged that his team was working on a solution to his hip problem. After triumphing in the fourth round, he revealed that had his condition deteriorated any further than it had been the day prior, he would have opted not to play.

“If it was worse than yesterday I would’ve thought about not playing today but when I have a chance, trying to get through situations early in my career, I want to give it a try. For sure I’m not physically 100% today. Tomorrow I have a day off, which can help,” he said, according to Tennis Infinity.

It’s noteworthy that Jannik Sinner is continuing to compete, especially with the Italian Open in Rome approaching – a significant event for him as it’s his home ATP Masters 1000 tournament. An injury forcing him to miss this would be unfortunate, but he is backed by a team of professionals.

His decision to participate suggests the injury might not be overly severe. However, Sinner is not at full capacity, which has affected his performance, as seen at the Monte-Carlo Masters.

There, he experienced a leg injury and lost the match despite leading in the third set when the injury occurred. The additional day of rest will be beneficial, but his health remains a critical storyline, particularly if he progresses to the final. He faces two challenging matches before potentially reaching that stage.
