Stefanos Tsitsipas has undergone surgery on his right elbow, but is hopeful of being fit for the start of the new season.

The world No. 4 has struggled with the problem in recent weeks, withdrawing from the Paris Masters during his opener and then ending his ATP Finals campaign after losing his first group clash with Andrey Rublev.

Tsitsipas, 23, posted a photo of himself in a hospital bed on his Facebook page showing his bandaged right elbow.

The Greek player wrote: “Things often get harder before they get easier, but with each fight we have the opportunity to create our own unique story.”

“Some days, life is about your dreams, hopes, and visions for the future. There are also days when life is about putting one foot in front of the other and that’s okay too.

“To all the fans, thank you for your continued support and encouragement. Focused on a healthier and happier future. Next stop, preseason in Dubai in two weeks and then looking towards Australia.”

Tsitsipas reached her first Grand Slam final at the French Open during the spring, but has not found her best form since, losing in the first round at Wimbledon and the third round at the US Open, where she faced a barrage of criticism for his long bath. breaks.
