Jannik Sinner will head to the Rome Open on Sunday with optimism about his current condition and about playing over the next two weeks at his home tournament after his demise at the Madrid Open over the past week.
Sinner had to withdraw before his match against Felix Auger-Aliassime due to a hip injury which had been affecting him since he defeated Pavel Kotov. He made the late decision to play his match against Karen Khachanov, but he always left it open ended afterwards.
Saying similar to the previous match, he said he wasn't sure if he'd play in his next round and sure enough he withdrew from the tournament. This allowed Auger-Aliassime a direct route through to the semi-finals where he faces Jiri Lehecka later today. But as per Corriere dello Sport, there is optimism that he will play at home.
Leaving Madrid immediately, he returned to Monte Carlo where he is set to undergo some medical tests and some physiotherapy sessions. This is on the schedule for the next three days before heading to Rome on Sunday. He will then resume training and a decision will be made from there. But he also has time to decide and recoup. He will not play in Rome until at least next Friday so has a week to get everything sorted.

Very sad to have to withdraw from my next match here in Madrid. My hip has been bothering me this week and has slowly been getting more painful. Taking the advice from the doctors we decided it’s best to not play further and make it worse.
