"The change of surface from concrete to ground, where you slip, is a problem for those who have hip pain like Sinner, or the balls are heavier because they take moisture from the ground, putting more stress on the elbow and arm, as happened to Carlos Alcaraz," said Ljubicic to Sky Sport 24.
"Players move more and more and hit harder and at a certain point the body tells them enough is enough. Jannik's problem is not serious, but important and not to be underestimated.
"The Roland Garros is upon us, Wimbledon is around the corner and the Olympics immediately after. We saw how many withdrawals there were in Madrid, let's say that the players at this stage of the season are more sensitive than usual and attentive to what their body tells them."
