Jannik Sinner after announcement of stop for Florence has several alternatives: the goal now is not to lose any more ranking positions

Jannik Sinner is still taking time to recover from his ankle, injured during the Sofia tournament, and after Astana he will also miss the Florence Atp, where he would have been number one seed.

The South Tyrolean tennis player, who sees the Atp Finals in Turin increasingly distant, risks losing more ranking positions if he fails to defend points in upcoming tournaments. A return to world number 12 could take place in Vienna in late October, or a week earlier in Naples, before the last Masters 1000 in Paris-Bercy.
