Milos Raonic to miss U.S. Open
TORONTO -- Rising star Milos Raonic will miss the U.S. Open as he recovers from hip surgery.
The hard-serving 20-year-old Canadian announced the news Monday on Twitter. He'll return to the court when Canada faces Israel in a Davis Cup matchup Sept. 16-18.
Raonic posted: "After extensive deliberation with my doctors + team, I have decided to delay my tournament return until after the US Open at DC vs Israel."
The U.S. Open begins next Monday in New York.
Raonic said in a second tweet: "I am feeling great, and working hard w/ my coach, physio, and fitness coach. I am excited to comeback and will continue to keep u updated."
Raonic is ranked No. 29 and won his first ATP tournament in February in San Jose.
But he injured his hip in the second round at Wimbledon and had surgery July 5 in Vail, Colo.
