World number three Alexander Zverev has withdrawn from the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament after picking up an injury, as reported on Tennis365.

Organisers of the event, which takes place in Rotterdam, confirmed that Zverev would not be featuring in this year’s edition of the competition.

The 21-year-old has injured his ankle and will now focus on recovering and getting back to full fitness.

Zverev had a similar ankle issue during the Australian Open but managed to reach the fourth round, where he was dumped out by Milos Raonic.

The German international is highly-rated by many senior players and current world number one Novak Djokovic believes that Zverev can challenge Rafael Nadal’s dominance on clay this year. 

Zverev will be looking to add to his 10 ATP titles this season. 

Do you think Zverev can become the world number one within the next few years?
