Tsitsipas loss

Stefanos Tsitsipas has withdrawn from the Nitto ATP Finals due to a right elbow injury on Wednesday ahead of his second Green Group match at the Pala Alpitour in Turin.

Second alternate Cameron Norrie will take Tsitsipas' place and face Norwegian Casper Ruud on Wednesday evening not before 9 p.m. Andrey Rublev defeated Tsitsipas 6-4, 6-4 on Monday in their opening round-robin match.

"I have taken the very difficult decision to retire from the 2021 [Nitto ATP] Finals due to my elbow injury, which has been bothering me for a couple of weeks now," Tsitsipas said. "It's a very difficult decision from my side and I was working really hard this year to get to play the Finals and be part of this amazing event, but unfortunately I won't be able to continue."
