After undergoing hip surgery on July 5, Milos Raonic has returned to the tennis hopeful of playing the US Open.
Raonic injured his hip in a freak fall early in a second round Wimbledon match against Gilles Muller. The Canadian with the booming serve was keen on playing his home tournament in Montreal, but according to a report from the Toronto Globe and Mail that’s unlikely.
Raonic has been busy with rehab, training in the pool and earlier this week he began hitting again on the tennis courts.
“It’s certainly a different type of work,” Raonic told the Globe and Mail. “I wish I could be playing for eight hours a day instead of rehabbing. It’s a different type of work, but it needs to be done.”
The 6’4″ 20-year-old Raonic has been at the forefront of the new stars in tennis. He currently ranks No. 27 on the ATP computer and if healthy would have been a major obstacle this summer on the hardcourts.
