Tennis: still injured in the arm, Alcaraz withdraws from the Masters 1000 in Rome

World number 3 Carlos Alcaraz will not play the Masters 1000 in Rome from next week due to his right forearm being sore again after his resumption in Madrid, he announced on social networks this Friday, three weeks before Roland-Garros.

“I felt pain, discomfort in my arm after playing in Madrid. I had exams today (Friday) and I have muscle edema in the pronator teres (a forearm muscle, Editor's note), a consequence of my recent injury. Unfortunately I won't be able to play in Rome. I need rest to recover and be able to play without any pain,” he explained. The young Spaniard lost in the quarter-finals (4-6, 6-3, 6-2) in Madrid this Wednesday, for his return after a month without competition, against Rublev.

Arriving in Madrid without having touched the racket for a week, the protégé of Juan Carlos Ferrero had only registered his participation on the eve of his entry into the running. “Here, in Madrid, every time I hit a forehand, I think about my forearm, if I’m going to feel it or not,” he said after his elimination, while describing his week as “very positive,” and then being optimistic about the Rome tournament.

“I will have to work hard in the coming days if I want to go to Rome with good feelings, without thinking about my forearm, without pain,” he continued. I imagine it will be a slow process, I have to be patient, but I leave Madrid with good sensations in my forearm. This new setback necessarily raises questions about his ability to be physically ready for Roland-Garros, which begins on May 26.
