David Goffin (ATP 13) will not participate in Wimbledon later this month. Our compatriot suffered an ankle injury at the grass tournament in Halle on Monday. After further investigation, it turns out to be serious enough to keep him away from the Grand Slam tournament in London.
Goffin hasn’t had much to celebrate in 2021. In February he still won the ATP tournament in Montpellier, but at the Australian Open and Roland Garros – two tournaments where he previously reached the quarterfinals – Goffin was immediately allowed to pack his bags after the first round. He will not turn the tide at Wimbledon.
The 30-year-old tennis player suffered his ankle injury on Monday in Halle in a Corentin Moutet match. Goffin made a strange move in the second set and had to retire later in the match. Further investigation has now shown that his ankle is too badly damaged to participate in Wimbledon. A new blow for Goffin, who has been injured countless times in recent years.
