“If I keep playing now, I don’t think I’ll be able to play next year. I will not go to Roland Garros, I will not play these months and my intention is that next year will be my last. To be able to play the tournaments I want to say goodbye to those who have marked me.

I didn’t make it, I’m not ready to compete yet. I will try to regenerate my body in these months, I will not set a return date. When I feel physically ready, I’ll start over. It could be a goal to try to get to the end of the year and be able to play the Davis Cup. And to be able to compete next year as well. I think it will be my last year.

The progression of the injury I suffered in Australia did not go as I would have liked. I have missed some goals and participation in Roland Garros is becoming impossible. Right now I won’t be able to be at Roland Garros. With what this tournament means to me, you can imagine how difficult it is. I have no intention of competing for the next few months”he said among other things.
