Stefanos Tsitsipas, currently ranked sixth in the world, is facing uncertainty regarding his participation in the ATP Finals set to begin tomorrow in Turin.
The Greek tennis player was seen limping off the court during a training session with Carlios Alcaraz, having only played two games.
Due to a muscle problem, Tsitsipas is unlikely to be in a position to compete in his scheduled match against Italian player Jannik Sinner, which is set to take place at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday at the Alpitour arena.
In the 2019 edition of the ATP Finals, Tsitsipas emerged as the champion, earning 200 points. He also achieved a victory in the group stage in the previous edition. Therefore, he has a significant title to defend.
If Tsitsipas is unable to participate, his replacement will be the Polish player Hubert Hurkacz, who concluded the season strongly with a title win at the Shangi Masters 1000 and a final appearance in Basel.
Meanwhile, Carlios Alcaraz had to continue his training session alone with the guidance of his coach Juan Carlos Ferrero.
