Alexander Zverev has stepped out of Stuttgart. 

The top-seeded German officially withdrew from this week's Boss Open on Stuttgart's grass because his body needs to recover after a physical four hour, 19-minute loss to Carlos Alcaraz in the Roland Garros final on Sunday.

That French Open final was Zverev's third five-set match of the tournament.

"I've played a lot of tennis in the last few weeks and reached the final in Paris, where I played five tough sets," Zverev said in a statement. "I feel that my body is not ready to go from clay to grass now."
