Jannik Sinner announced his withdrawal from the Bastad Open following his elimination in the Wimbledon quarterfinals. The Italian was knocked out by Daniil Medvedev, ending a five-match winning streak against the Russian and bringing their head-to-head record to 7-5.
The result was not what the world No. 1 had hoped for, as he seemed poised to compete for the SW19 trophy. Just a week before Wimbledon, Sinner secured his fourth title of the season at the ATP 500 Halle Open, finishing the grass-court swing with a 9-1 record.

Fatigue forces Sinner to skip Bastad

Sinner's season has been intense, with a total of 46 matches played (42-4) and four titles so far. Although he showed great form throughout the tournament, with comfortable victories over players like Matteo Berrettini and Ben Shelton, he could not overcome Medvedev, who eliminated him after five sets.
The next challenge for Sinner was the ATP 250 Bastad Open, scheduled from July 15 to 21, immediately following Wimbledon, on clay courts. However, the Italian decided to rest that week due to physical fatigue.
"Never an easy decision as I would love to play, but following the advice from my team and doctors, they have advised it's best to take some time to rest and recover. I hope to play Bastad in the future, I've heard it's a great tournament," he said.
Now, Sinner is preparing for his participation in the Olympic Games in two weeks, which will be held on the clay courts of Roland Garros. Since he will not be in Bastad, he will have no prior tournaments to readapt to clay, unlike several renowned players who will compete in the ATP 250 next week, including Andrey Rublev, Casper Ruud, and Rafael Nadal.
