Jannik Sinner has withdrawn from the Mutua Madrid Open due to a hip injury, the tournament announced Wednesday.

The No. 2 player in the PIF ATP Rankings defeated Karen Khachanov in the fourth round Tuesday and was due to face Felix Auger-Aliassime in the quarter-finals at the ATP Masters 1000 event on Thursday.

“Very sad to have to withdraw from my next match here in Madrid,” Sinner wrote on social media. “My hip has been bothering me this week and has slowly been getting more painful. Taking the advice from the doctors we decided it’s best to not play further and make it worse.”

The 22-year Italian, who was making his third appearance in Madrid, holds a 28-2 record on the season. Sinner lifted his first major trophy at the Australian Open and won his second ATP Masters 1000 crown in Miami.

Auger-Aliassime moves on to his first ATP Masters 1000 semi-final since the 2022 Rolex Paris Masters. The Canadian will play third seed Daniil Medvedev or 30th seed Jiri Lehecka for a place in the final.
