Carlos Alcaraz out of Queen’s due to injury, but expected to be fit for Wimbledon
Teen sensation Carlos Alcaraz won’t make his Queen’s Club Championship bow this year as he has withdrawn from the ATP 500 event due to injury.
The 19-year-old was set to make his 2022 grass-court debut at next week’s cinch Championships, where he would have been the highest-ranked player in the field, but an elbow injury has forced him out of the tournament.
However, he is still set to fly to the United Kingdom to compete at Wimbledon, which gets underway on June 27.
“As u all know, I was super excited to play at @QueensTennis but a slight elbow issue means I can’t! 😞 I hope to be there in 2023… see u all in the UK 🇬🇧 in a few days! 🎾🌱,” he announced on Twitter.
