Breaking news. Carlos Alcaraz suffered an injury and withdraws from the tournament in Basel. Does this mean the end of the season for the Spaniard? We know the answer.
Bad news for Carlos Alcaraz fans: The Spaniard withdrew from the ATP 500 tournament in Basel. All because of the injury.
Carlos Alcaraz announced that he suffered inflammation in his left foot and feels discomfort in the gluteal muscles, which is why he is withdrawing from the ATP tournament in Basel. However, the Spaniard’s absence in Basel does not mean that he is finished competing this season. The Spaniard withdraws from Basel to give himself a chance to regenerate and return fully healthy to the competition in Paris. This seems like a smart move, as there are a total of 500 points to be gained in Basel and 1,000 points in Paris.
Alcaraz’s withdrawal from Basel practically deprives him of any chance of ending the season in first place in the ranking. The only shadow of a chance may appear if Novak Djokovic was prematurely eliminated from the tournament in Paris and the ATP Finals. In these events last year, the Serb reached the finals, and won the ATP Finals. In Paris he lost to Holger Rune.
