Raonic wins first match back from injury

Raonic wins first match back from injury

Milos Raonic returned to the ATP Tour with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Viktor Troicki at the Japan Open.

It was Raonic's first match following a seven-week absence with a left-wrist surgery. The big-serving Canadian has withdrawn from five events this year, and conceded walkovers at two others.

"It's been very frustrating," said Raonic, who started this year at No. 3 but has slipped to No. 12 in the rankings. "I think I've had more than a dozen different injuries and reasons that have kept me away from tournaments. That hasn't been fun because I haven't been able to focus on tennis, I've been focusing on 'Can I play today or can't I?' rather than, 'What do I need to do with my tennis game?'"

Raonic out of US Open with wrist injury

Raonic out of US Open with wrist injury

Milos Raonic has withdrawn from the US Open with a left wrist injury.

Raonic said in the post he had a procedure on Wednesday to remove "portions of bone" that had been causing him discomfort for weeks.

"I have tried everything in my power to rehabilitate this injury in time for the U.S. Open ... However, I am left with no option but to withdraw from the event," Raonic said on Instagram.

"I have too much respect for the US Open and my fellow competitors to take a spot in the draw when I know I cannot give full effort due to this injury," Raonic added. "I am crushed to miss this event and a chance to play in front of the fantastic New York crowd, but I truly had no other options."

Raonic is just the latest forced out of the tournament, which features a men's field headed by Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer but missing injured Novak Djokovic, reigning champion Stan Wawrinka and former finalist Kei Nishikori.

The Canadian reached the quarter-finals of both the Australian Open and Wimbledon this year, but has been hampered all season by injury.

After losing his opening match at the Montreal Masters he pulled out of last week's tournament in Cincinnati.

In his message to his fans, Raonic said he was already back in the gym, beginning rehabilitation.

"I look forward to rejoining the tour healthier and stronger and finishing the 2017 year in proper form," he said.

To all my friends and fans, I’m writing to provide you with an update on my injury. As you know, I’ve been dealing with a painful condition in my left wrist, which has been bothering me for many weeks now and recently forced me to withdraw from the Cincinnati Masters. I have tried everything in my power to rehabilitate this injury in time for the US Open in order to play an event that is so truly special to me. However, the pain is too great and, in consultation with my doctors, I am left with no option but to withdraw from the event. Today, I underwent a procedure to remove portions of the bone that have been causing the discomfort and preventing me from being able to play the way I normally can. I have too much respect for the US Open and my fellow competitors to take a spot in the draw when I know I cannot give full effort due to this injury. I am crushed to miss this event and a chance to play in front of the fantastic New York crowd, but I truly had no other options. I am already back in the gym starting my rehabilitation, and hope to be recovered and back on the court in a matter of a few weeks. I look forward to rejoining the tour healthier and stronger and finishing the 2017 year in proper form. Thank you for all the support. I’ll keep you updated in the days to come, and look forward to seeing you all at a match soon. Yours, Milos Raonic #TeamMilos

Federer outclasses Raonic to reach Wimbledon semis

Federer outclasses Raonic to reach Wimbledon semis

Roger Federer says the key to winning majors is making sure his average is as high as possible - every round.

There is nothing average about Federer, though, as he proved again on Wednesday by turning his 100th Wimbledon match into an exhibition of his magic, outclassing Milos Raonic 6-4 6-2 7-6(4) to reach the semi-finals for a record 12th time.

The Swiss maestro, 36 next month, played his best tennis of the tournament to dismantle the big-serving Canadian - avenging last year's semi-final defeat in stunning fashion.
