World No. 3 Carlos Alcaraz announced on Friday that he will not compete at the upcoming ATP Italian Open, the clay-court ATP Masters 1000 event, due to a right forearm injury.

It is the same injury that caused Alcaraz to miss the Monte-Carlo Masters and the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell last month.

The Spaniard then returned to action at the Madrid Open, where he reached the quarterfinals before falling to Andrey Rublev in three sets on Wednesday.

Rublev’s 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 win snapped Alcaraz’s 14-match winning streak at his home tournament, where he was the two-time defending champion.

“I felt some pain after playing in Madrid, some discomfort in my arm,” Alcaraz wrote on X.

“Today I did some tests and I have a muscle edema in my pronator teres, a consequence of my recent injury. Unfortunately I will not be able to play in Rome. I need to rest so I can recover and play 100% pain free. I am very sorry, I will see you next year @InteBNLdItalia,” he added.

The 20-year-old is 18-5 in the 2024 season. He lifted his 13th tour-level title in March at the Indian Wells and the tennis star is currently fifth in the ATP Live Race To Turin.

Meanwhile, world No. 1 Novak Djokovic and home favourite Jannik Sinner are set to lead the field at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia (ATP Italian Open), which will take place at Rome’s Foro Italico from May 8-19.
