Spain’s world number three Carlos Alcaraz has withdrawn from next week’s Italian Open because of an injury to his right forearm.

The tournament in Rome takes place before the start of the second Grand Slam of the season – the French Open – in Paris on 26 May.

The 20-year-old’s Madrid Open title defence came to an end on Wednesday with a loss to Andrey Rublev in the quarter-finals.

Alcaraz, who said he had felt pain while playing in Madrid, also withdrew from the Barcelona Open and Monte Carlo Masters in April.

“Unfortunately, I will not be able to play in Rome. I need to rest so I can recover and play 100% pain free,” the two-time Grand Slam champion said in a statement on Instagram, external.
