Bad news from Felix Auger Aliassime that got injured to his ankle just before his first-round in Vienna. Unfortunately, the Canadian ace had to withdraw from the ATP500 in Austria, and he will not take part in the last Master1000 in Paris and the Nextgen Finals. Felix still hopes to make it for the Davis Cup and join his dear friend Denis Shapovalov and Milos Raonic.
The communicate about the ankle injury and his condition
Felix commented: “Sadly I won’t be able to play my first-round match at [email protected] today. I, unfortunately, hurt my left ankle at practice yesterday. Will keep you updated on how my recovery is going. Thanks everyone for your continuous support. Danke Wien. See you next time.”
Today, the Canadian added:
“After talking with my team and doctors, we concluded that I wouldn’t be able to compete in the last two tournaments of the season. I’m sorry I can’t take part of the Rolex Paris Masters and the Next Gen ATP finals in Milan which are important encounters with the fans. I’m planning to be fit and ready for the Davis Cup finals in November. Thank you all for understanding. See you soon!”
Who will qualify for the Nextgen in Milan?
Since Tsitsipas is not expected to play in Milan and Felix is out, this is “good news” for Mikail Ymer from Sweden that would be the 7th player in line.
