Medvedev injury French Open

In a concerning development ahead of the French Open, Daniil Medvedev’s hopes were dashed as he was forced to withdraw from his Madrid Open quarter-final clash against Jiri Lehecka due to a hip injury. The world number four received treatment on his right leg during the match but eventually conceded defeat, citing discomfort that hindered his movement on the court.

Reflecting on the unfortunate incident, Medvedev expressed uncertainty about the severity of the injury, stating, “It was a return when he served and volleyed… when I ran, I wanted to run faster and faster during the movement, and suddenly felt my hip blocked.” Despite attempting to continue, the discomfort persisted, leading to his decision to withdraw from the match.

Medvedev joins a growing list of top players grappling with fitness concerns ahead of the prestigious Grand Slam event. Australian Open champion Jannik Sinner previously pulled out of the tournament due to a hip injury, while world number three Carlos Alcaraz struggled with a right forearm problem during his quarter-final match against Andrey Rublev.
