Jannik Sinner has withdrawn from the Mutua Madrid Open due to a hip injury, the tournament announced on Wednesday.

The No. 2 in the PIF ATP rankings defeated Karen Khachanov in the fourth round on Tuesday and was due to face Felix Auger-Aliassime in the quarterfinals of the ATP Masters 1000 event on Thursday.

“Very sad to have to withdraw from my next match here in Madrid,” Sinner wrote on social media. “My hip has been bothering me this week and little by little it has become more painful. Following the advice of the doctors we have decided that it is better not to continue playing and make it worse.”

The 22-year-old Italian, who was making his third appearance in Madrid, has a record of 28-2 on the season. Sinner lifted his first Grand Slam trophy at the Australian Open and won his second ATP Masters 1000 in Miami.

Auger-Aliassime advances to his first ATP Masters 1000 semi-final since the Rolex Paris Masters 2022. The Canadian will face third-seeded Daniil Medvedev or 30th-seeded Jiri Lehecka for a spot in the final.
