Stefanos Tsitsipas truly faced bad luck as due to injury he retired from the tournament after just three games. While competing against Holger Rune, the audience noticed him visibly uncomfortable. While he managed to pull 2-1, he had to consult a doctor during the changeover break. This is when he decided to drop out of the tournament due to a back injury, which brought a swift victory for Rune in the ATP 2023 tournament.

While fans are concerned over his health for future matches, Andy Roddick seemed to have no cool for Tsitsipas’ decision. Roddick commented that Stefanos Tsitsipas needed to be more careful about his health while jumping to tournaments. Referring to Tsitsipas’ earlier comments about the Nitto ATP Tournament’s importance being more than the Grand Slam, Roddick said- “I don’t think he believes what he says.”
