Marton Fucsovics withdraws from Umag

Hungarian tennis player Marton Fucsovics won't be returning to clay next week as he has withdrawn from Umag. The 27-year-old was expected to make his second appearance on the clay courts of Umag as he debuted at the tournament last year.

The Hungarian didn't particularly impress in his Umag debut a year ago as he beat France's Benoit Paire in the first round before losing to Argentina's Marco Trungelliti in his following match. Fucsovics, ranked at No.

51 in the world, last played at Wimbledon -- where he was edged out by world No. 10 Fabio Fognini in five sets. Following the withdrawal of former world No. 31, a place in the Umag main draw has opened for world No. 98 Yannick Maden.

However, the German may still choose to play another ATP event next week. Should the 29-year-old decide to play Umag, he would make his debut appearance at the Croatian ATP 250 event. Maden hasn't played since losing in the Wimbledon qualifying first round to Japanese Hiroki Moriya.
