The German, who fell in the backcourt at the end of the second set against Nadal, and was forced to retire the match, says he needs to undergo more tests to determine what the next steps will be.

“I am now on my way back home. Based on the first medical checks, it looks like I have torn several lateral ligaments in my right foot,” he said.

“I will be flying to Germany on Monday to make further examinations and to determine the best and quickest way for me to recover,” Zverev said. “I want to thank everyone all over the world for the kind messages that I have received since yesterday. Your support means a lot to me right now!”
