After surgery on his right elbow, world number four Stefanos Tsitsipas says he is “focused on a better and happier future.”
Because of the ailment, the Greek, 23, withdrew from the ATP Finals after his first group game last week.
Tsitsipas was hurt in his opening match at the Paris Masters earlier this month, and he had to withdraw from the season-ending ATP Finals after losing to Russia’s Andrey Rublev.
He reached his first Grand Slam final at the French Open in June, losing to Novak Djokovic in five sets after leading 2-0.
However, he lost in the first round at Wimbledon and was heavily criticised for his long bathroom breaks during his run to the US Open third round.
“Some days life is all about your dreams, hopes and visions for the future. There are also days where life is just about putting one foot in front of the other and that’s OK too,” he wrote.
