Tsitsipas Withdraws From Hurkacz Clash At ATP Cup

  • Posted: Jan 01, 2022

Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas has withdrawn from his blockbuster showdown against Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz at the ATP Cup on Saturday evening due to a right elbow injury. Aristotelis Thanos has stepped in to face Hurkacz.

Tsitsipas withdrew from the 2021 Nitto ATP Finals a month-and-a-half ago after one match due to the same elbow injury.

“The recovery from my elbow surgery in November is on track for Melbourne and today was a precautionary step to make sure I make Melbourne,” Tsitsipas said. “We will see day by day, match by match until then.”

Tsitsipas has only withdrawn from this opening match in Group D play. Greece’s next tie will be on Monday evening against Argentina.

Poland’s Kamil Majchrzak defeated Greece’s Michail Pervolarakis 6-1, 6-4 to give his country a 1-0 lead.
