Three days after saying goodbye to the US Open due to an injury that forced him to withdraw, Carlos Alcaraz placeholder image has released more details about his physical problems. The Murcian visited this Saturday Juanjo López, your private doctor, to assess the damage caused during the match against Auger-Aliassime, which is none other than a fibrillar tear in the quadriceps and an elongation in the adductor.

“I have visited my doctor @drlopezmartinez for evaluation and diagnosis of my injury in @usopen. A fibrillar tear in the vastus medialis and lateral quadriceps and a lengthening in the adductor, so I have to rest for a few weeks. Thank you very much for your support! “Alcaraz informed his followers through Twitter.

We will see how long the Spaniard will be away from the slopes, since neither he nor his environment have announced the recovery periods or the time of withdrawal with accuracy. What is certain, as announced last Friday, is that will not be in the ATP 250 in Metz (France), so we will have to wait for appointments like him Sofia Open (September 27 to October 3) or the Indian Wells 1,000 Masters (October 4-17).
