Marin Cilic afirmou, nas redes sociais, que não vai participar na Davis Cup com a Croácia devido a problemas no joelho.

O 39.º classificado no ranking mundial deu a sua temporada por terminada e garante que vai aproveitar o tempo para recuperar e entrar em 2020 na melhor forma possível.

O croata passou por algumas intervenções cirúrgicas no joelho e, apesar de não participar, admite que: “Estou extremamente decepcionado por ter de desistir, mas acredito nos meus colegas de equipa e certamente que serei o fã mais dedicado deles.”

A Croácia, que joga no Grupo B com Espanha e Rússia, vai contar com Borna Coric, Ivan Dodig, Nikola Mektic, Mate Pavic e Ivo Karlovic.

With the 2019 season finished, I wanted to share an update with you all. The last year and a half has been a real struggle mentally and physically for me. Even with all the preventative work and rehab my team and I did, my recurring knee injury has continued to give me problems, and as the season progressed it was becoming more evident that surgery was inevitable. I recently did an ultrasound and luckily the results were better than expected💪🏼💪🏼. The rehab work was successful enough that surgery is not necessary at this stage, however, I will need to undergo a few minor interventions which will keep me off the tennis court for a longer period and unfortunately means I will not be able to compete at the Davis Cup this month 🙁. I am extremely disappointed by this, but I believe in my teammates and will be their most devoted fan 🇭🇷. In the meantime, I will dedicate myself to getting back to form so that I can enter the 2020 season healthier, more prepared, and more motivated than ever. Thank you all for your constant support and I look forward to seeing you back on tour in 2020. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #teamCilic #iznadsvihhrvatska
