Spanish tennis star Carlos Alcaraz has withdrawn from the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters tournament on Tuesday, April 9, having sustainedan arm injury. He was scheduled to start the tournament on Wednesday, April 10 with a match against Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime.

The 20 year-old reported this himself on X; “I have been working in Monte Carlo and trying to recover until the last minute from an injured pronator teres in my right arm, but it was not possible and I cannot play!”

The Monte Carlo tournament has not yet brought Alcaraz any success. Last year he was missing due to an injury and the year before that he was immediately eliminated by America’s Sebastian Korda. Therefore, the Spaniard has only played one match on the clay courts of the principality so far in his promising young career.
