According to Alexander Zverev, he has "several tears in his ligaments" following the right ankle injury that caused him to be forced to withdraw from the Roland Garros semi-final against Rafa Nadal on Friday.

According to my first medical test, I appear to have multiple torn ligaments on my right foot. I will fly to Germany Monday to undergo further tests to determine the best and most efficient way to heal myself," the Olympic champion explained on Instagram without providing any details about his recovery.

After fracturing his right ankle, the 25-year old tennis player had to be taken off the court by a wheelchair. He had been returning a Nadal blow that made it 6-6 in round 2. The second set ended in the tie break in favor of the manacorense. The Russian-born player returned to the center court with crutches and a few minutes later, confirming his withdrawal from the tournament.

The lanky, almost two-meter tall player assured that he would keep him informed about the developments. "I would like to thank everyone from all over the world for the warm messages that I have received since yesterday. Your support is very important at this time," Zverev said after beating Carlos Alcaraz from Murcia in quarterfinals. He wished Nadal all the best and wished the Balearic Islands all the best for Sunday's final.
