Milos Raonic is Back Playing Tennis Again
by Tom Gainey | July 30th, 2011, 2:20 pm

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.

It is too bad he can’t “come back” in Canada, but best that he get that hip fully healed first. What a shame that freak fall happened.

spider Says:

I hope this injury doesn’t affect his powerful serve… cant wait to see him play again.
