Tsitsipas is replaced in the singles draw by German Yannick Hanfmann, and Hanfmann and Dominik Koepfer will take the Tsitsipas brothers’ places in the doubles field.
The 22-year-old star reached his first Grand Slam final at Roland Garros. Tsitsipas took a two-set lead against World No. 1 Novak Djokovic on Sunday to move to the brink of lifting the Coupe des Mousquetaires, but he fell in five sets.
The top seed in Halle is World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev, who will begin his tournament on Tuesday against Jan-Lennard Struff.
