Affected by a hernia, Daniil Medvedev will be absent “1 to 2 months” and will miss part of the season on clay

His see-saw performances in recent weeks, despite briefly occupying first place in the world, caught the eye. This Saturday, Daniil Medvedev confirmed that the visual impression was correct: the Russian, affected by a small hernia, will miss one to two months of competition to heal as well as possible. If the world number 2 has not recorded his package for Roland-Garros (May 22 – June 5), he should however miss most of the land season, starting with Monte-Carlo from April 10.

For the past few months I have been playing with a small herniahe explained in a message posted on Twitter. With my team, I decided to make a small intervention to solve the problem. I should be out for a month or two but I will work hard to get back on the courts soon“. Already forfeited for Monte-Carlo and Barcelona, ​​the Russian could try to return from Rome to best defend his points obtained in Paris last year (quarter-finalist). But his limited taste for ocher could encourage him to take his time to return, raising the specter of a package for Roland-Garros.

With Rafael Nadal also absent for the start of the season on clay, it is quite simply the two best players of the year at Race who will be missing. But ocher will not take a back seat despite these absences of weight: between the return to competition of Novak Djokovic, defending champion Porte d’Auteuil and the irresistible rise in power of Carlos Alcaraz, the season on earth will be worth it of eye.
