Hard-luck case Alexander Zverev has posted on social media with updates following his tough right ankle turn Friday in the French Open semifinals to Rafael Nadal.
The German posted on Instagram:
“Hey guys! I am now on my way back home. Based on the first medical checks, it looks like I have torn several lateral ligaments in my right foot. I will be flying to Germany on Monday to make further examinations and to determine the best and quickest way for me to recover.
“I want to thank everyone all over the world for the kind messages that I have received since yesterday. Your support means a lot to me right now! I will try to keep you updated as much as possible on further developments.”
Friday night following the fall, he had this to say:

Zverev will likely move to No. 2 in the rankings on June 13, but it is unlikely he will be ready to play Wimbledon where — if the tournament followed the rankings — he’d be the top seed.
