Matteo Berrettini pulls out of French Open with hand injury

The Italian player said on Saturday that Matteo Berrettini will not take part in the French Open later this month as he is recovering from a hand injury.

Following surgery in March, world number eight has missed the Masters 1000 events in Monte Carlo, Madrid and Rome.

“After a very positive update from my medical team, I am now back at a high level of on-court training,” Berrettini wrote on Instagram.

“My hand is feeling great and I am working hard to build my match fitness.

“My team and I have decided that it would not make sense to go back to 5 straight set matches on clay at Roland Garros, so I will delay my return to compete in full grass seasons.”

Berrettini, who reached the semi-finals of the Australian Open in January, made it to the quarterfinals in Paris last year and lost to eventual champion Novak Djokovic.

The Grand Slam event in the French capital will take place from 22 May to 5 June.
