New Zverev Injury Makes Immediate Future Unclear

German was meant to return for the first time since Roland Garros

Alexander Zverev was supposed to return to action this week for the first time since Roland Garros. But a new injury, a bone edema, has made the German’s immediate future unclear after he withdrew from Davis Cup play.

“I have a bone edema issue which causes me quite a lot of pain,” Zverev said according to daviscup.com. “I don’t know if it happened yesterday or not but yesterday in practice with Oscar [Otte] it got to the point where I couldn’t run or walk anymore.

“I subsequently found out that it was a bone edema, which means I won’t be able to participate here and it is not a question of days, it is more a question of weeks or most likely even months.”

In the Roland Garros semi-finals against Rafael Nadal, Zverev tore three ligaments in his right ankle. He underwent surgery on 8 June.

Zverev, a two-time Nitto ATP Finals champion, is currently in eighth place in the Pepperstone ATP Live Race To Turin.
