โ€œI have had some stiffness in my neck over the last few days so have decided to withdraw from Paris Bercy. I would like to make sure I am 100 percent ready to compete in Torino for the ATP Finals. Thanks for all the support and see you in Torino,โ€ the 25-year-old wrote on Instagram.

Berrettini earlier this year reached the final of Wimbledon and the quarterfinals of the US Open, losing to World No. 1 Novak Djokovic on both occasions.
