Due to his hip and Achilles injuries, Tímea Babos will not start in the tennis tournament of the Tokyo Olympics starting next Friday, so Jenő Réka will not be there at the games either.

Babos gave up his first round match on Tuesday at the Budapest Slag competition at the Rome Tennis Academy, and after his hip problem did not improve, he withdrew from the doubles quarter-finals on Thursday.

I have brought you very sad news today, which are also the most difficult and painful decisions of my career. I have been training injured and racing for months because I didn’t want to be out of the game to get in the best possible shape for the Tokyo Olympics. Unfortunately, overloading has resulted in a pretty serious injury. ” the player said on his website on Friday.

He added that based on thorough medical examinations – MRI, ultrasound, X-ray – the diagnosis is depressing, so doctors need to step back from the Olympics and it is still uncertain how long he will not be able to play.

I know exactly what it means to start at an Olympics, to compete as a member of the Hungarian team. After London and Rio, I couldn’t wait to pick up the heraldic warmer again to represent our country at another Olympics.“This is a hell of a difficult time, both mentally and physically, but I can only do one thing, from now on I will focus on my recovery and support all members of the Hungarian team for a successful performance in Tokyo” – formulated on babostimea.hu.

His father, Csaba Babos, told MTI on Thursday that his daughter’s hip injury, which she has been struggling with since Wimbledon, is not improving, she has been diagnosed with minor cartilage detachment on her hip on MRI, and there is also an inflammation in Achilles. The 121st place in the world rankings would have been on Réka’s side in Budapest, and the duo were also in the women’s doubles field of the Olympics, but in the new situation, Jani will not be able to participate in the Tokyo Games either.
