He entered Hamburg, but had to withdraw because of injury.
From his site:
Oliver has been told that there is still impingement and a little fracture on the bone after undergoing an MRI scan Monday. It means that he needs a week of therapy more before he can think about starting to run or play little tennis.
Oliver was forced to retire from the ATP World Tour 500 event in Hamburg over a month ago after he ruptured his syndesmosis ligament, partially tore his exterior ligaments and suffered from a severe hematoma.
"The injury is really bad, the leg is not ok. My doctor and physio said that I was very lucky, normally I would have to give up playing tennis for good," said Oliver.
Oliver has been forced to withdraw from the Moselle Open in Metz due to an ongoing injury. It is highly probable that he will not be able to defend his doubles title in Bangkok as well.
"I'm losing more and more points and my ranking is falling. It's frustrating because my leg is still not okay", confessed Oliver. "Tomorrow I'm going to Slovenia again to train for five days with the physio guy. Hope everything will be back to normal soon," he added.
Oliver has announced that he can not play the China Tour this year due to an ongoing injury. This is what Oliver said about his injury: "Yesterday I was in hospital and I have still inflammation and little blood in my ankle and around some tendons. The syndosmose is healed back, which was broken. It is a good sign, but my leg is not ready yet to give 100 % on court. Hopefully, I will be able to play the first tournament after 12 weeks injury in two weeks in Stockholm. Everything depends on how fast the inflammation and blood go out.
