‘Struggling’ Fabio Fognini to reveal decision on future after French Open
Fabio Fognini may be set for prolonged absence after the French Open after apparently making a decision on whether or not to have surgery.
The 31-year-old, who plays his best tennis on clay, struggled to overcome Andrey Rublev in Monte Carlo this week, and he says it’s becoming more and more difficult to take.
“I am not confident and I am sad about the lack of results,” Fognini told Gazzetta dello Sport. “At my age, I struggle more to accept it.
It has led the Italian to consider his future, with injuries starting to take their toll.
“I am dealing with a pain on my right elbow which is not healed but I am not worried by it,” he added.
“My ankle conditions did not progress but it got even worse.
“I took my decision, it’s not time to reveal it yet but I will play until the French Open, hoping to find the right week because I feel well while training.”
