Earlier today, it was reported that Sinner had his start altered to help him recover and he would decide on Sunday but he has taken that precaution even earlier.
"It is not easy to write this message, but after talking again with the doctors and specialists about my hip problems I have to announce that unfortunately I will not be able to play in Rome," Sinner begins by announcing via his official X account.

"Anyway, I will come to Rome for a few days and I will be at the Foro Italico. Thank you for your messages of support, which I appreciate very much. Now I will work with my team and doctors to be ready for Roland Garros. See you soon", concludes Jannik Sinner, who will start his recovery to be 100% ready for the French Open.
