Bad news for Milos Raonic fans. The young superstar from Canada underwent hip surgery Tuesday that will leave him sidelined for up to six weeks, missing most of the upcoming summer hardcourt series. The recovery period will also likely prevent Raonic from playing in the Rogers Cup in Montreal next month.
But according to Tennis Canada, the 20-year-old is already making progress on the stationary bike.
Raonic injured his right hip in a spill just four games into his second round match at Wimbledon against Gilles Muller.
Raonic is currently ranked No. 26, just one spot off his career-high. Raonic leads all players on the ATP Tour with 509 aces this season, seven ahead of Feliciano Lopez.
He won his first title in San Jose and was a finalist in Memphis.
