Stefanos Tsitsipas withdraws before his second match at the Nitto ATP Finals in Turin.

Norrie to play Ruud on Wednesday evening

Stefanos Tsitsipas has withdrawn from the Nitto ATP Finals due to a right elbow injury on Wednesday ahead of his second Green Group match at the Pala Alpitour in Turin.

Second alternate Cameron Norrie will take Tsitsipas’ place and face Norwegian Casper Ruud on Wednesday evening not before 9 p.m. Andrey Rublev defeated Tsitsipas 6-4, 6-4 on Monday in their opening round-robin match.

The 26-year-old Norrie is making his debut at the season finale following a breakthrough season in which he won his first title at the Mifel Open in Los Cabos and claimed his maiden ATP Masters 1000 trophy at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells.

Norrie has only played Ruud once before, and that came less than two months ago in the San Diego Open final. The Norwegian was victorious 6-0, 6-2.
