Branilci naslova Davisovega pokala so danes doživeli šok. Nastop na zaključnem turnirju, ki bo letos od 18. do 24. novembra potekal v Madridu, je namreč odpovedal trenutno 2. lopar Hrvaške Marin Čilić.

Razlog odpovedi nastopa nekdaj že 3. igralca sveta je poškodba kolena. “Sezona 2019 je bila zame pravi mentalni in fizični boj. Kljub vsemu preventivnemu delu in rehabilitaciji, ki smo jo z ekipo naredili, mi moje ponavljajoče se težave s kolenom še naprej povzročajo težave,” je svoj zapis na Instagramu pričel Marin Čilić.

Kasneje se je dotaknil še svojega (ne)nastopa v Davisovem pokalu, kjer bo Hrvaška letos poizkušala ubraniti naslov iz lanske sezone, ko je v Lilleu ugnala domačo Francijo: “Opraviti bom moral nekaj manjših posegov, ki me bodo za nekaj časa oddaljila od teniških igrišč. To pa na žalost pomeni, da ne bom mogel tekmovati v Davisovem pokalu v tem mesecu”, je dejal Hrvat, ki je lani v finalu najprej s 3:0 ugnal Jo-Wilfrieda Tsongaja, kasneje pa končno zmago Hrvaške potrdil še s prepričljivo zmago nad Lucasom Pouilleom.

Ob Borni Čoriću tako gre pričakovati, da bo za Hrvaško znova priložnost dobil 40-letni Ivo Karlović.

With the 2019 season finished, I wanted to share an update with you all. The last year and a half has been a real struggle mentally and physically for me. Even with all the preventative work and rehab my team and I did, my recurring knee injury has continued to give me problems, and as the season progressed it was becoming more evident that surgery was inevitable. I recently did an ultrasound and luckily the results were better than expected????. The rehab work was successful enough that surgery is not necessary at this stage, however, I will need to undergo a few minor interventions which will keep me off the tennis court for a longer period and unfortunately means I will not be able to compete at the Davis Cup this month ?. I am extremely disappointed by this, but I believe in my teammates and will be their most devoted fan ??. In the meantime, I will dedicate myself to getting back to form so that I can enter the 2020 season healthier, more prepared, and more motivated than ever. Thank you all for your constant support and I look forward to seeing you back on tour in 2020. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #teamCilic #iznadsvihhrvatska
