Why did Jannik Sinner retire against Cerundolo? Reason and recovery times

Sport

Jannik Sinner had to withdraw from the Miami Masters 1000 due to blisters on his feet . This is the physical problem that forced the Italian player to suddenly leave the field during the quarter final against Francisco Cerundolo . The South Tyrolean raised the white flag during the first set, when he found himself down 1-4 against the Argentine. It was an unexpected forfeit and not announced at all, given that there were no signs of this criticality.

In fact, Jannik Sinner led 40-0 in the fourth game and, on his turn to serve, seemed to be heading towards an easy 2-2. At that moment, however, the light goes out: the blue is not perfect on a short ball and then he is no longer able to play optimally, the South American is aggressive and operates the break. The 20-year-old goes down 1-3, in the following game Cerundolo keeps his serve at zero (nine consecutive points in three minutes) and our standard bearer makes his decision.

Jannik Sinner retires against Cerundolo in Miami: the cause and what happened

Jannik Sinner goes to shake his opponent’s hand, tells the chair judge his intention to quit and takes the way to the changing rooms. Shortly after comes the communication of the problem of blisters, reported by the journalist Giorgio Spalluto and shortly after also by the press release of the ATP. For a tennis player this is a fairly recurring criticality that does not raise particular concerns, but certainly the moment is not the best for the blue, who last week did not take the field to face Nick Kyrgios in Indian Wells.

Jannik Sinner had already suffered from it in the recent past: in the round of 16 in Vienna in 2020 he retired at 2-1 in the first set in favor of the Russian Andrey Rublev.

The blue said in the post-match: “ The blister came after a crash against Kyrgios. I stuffed the shoe, I tried, but the situation got worse against Cerundolo: I couldn’t walk. Now it will take a few days off, maybe a week. We will do some in-depth examinations. In Montecarlo I don’t know if I’ll be there, I hope so “.
