“I cannot stretch. I couldn’t serve well, I couldn’t hit the forehand well,” said Alcaraz. “I preferred to retire and see it and take care of it.” Alcaraz was hopeful of making a full recovery for his debut at the ATP Finals in Turin, which begin on Nov. 13, despite the quick turnaround.

“I have some tests on how it’s going to be before Turin,” he added. “But right now I’m focused on trying to get better in the abdominal and trying to be at 100% in Turin.”
