El croata Marin Cilic ha usado sus redes sociales para anunciar que causará baja de las finales de Copa Davis ya que se ha sometido a un par de pequeñas intervenciones en su rodilla, por la que lleva un año y medio sufriendo de diversos problemas, y eso le evitará poder estar en la importante cita de Madrid para defender a su selección en la Davis. Marin se ha mostrado triste por tener que renunciar a este torneo pero considera que es lo mejor para que de cara al 2020 pueda estar listo.

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
