Stefanos Tsitsipas withdrew from the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presentado por HSBC in Acapulco on Wednesday, citing a shoulder injury he sustained after the Australian Open.
“Mexico is one of my favorite destinations in the world, and I have always cherished the opportunity to compete in this prestigious tournament,” Tsitsipas wrote in an Instagram Story. “I am incredibly grateful for the support that I have received from the tennis people and the fans in Mexico over the past couple of years.
“Your unwavering support has been a tremendous source of inspiration and motivation for me, and I am truly thankful for all the encouragement and kindness that you have shown me.”
Tsitsipas competed at the ATP 500 in each of the past two years, tallying a 7-2 record in Acapulco. In 2021 the Greek reached the final and last year he fell in the semi-finals
