Former World No. 5 Tommy Robredo to Continue Comeback Bid in Metz

Former World No. 5 Tommy Robredo is set to return at the next week’s Moselle Open in Metz after being sidelined for six months due to severe elbow issues.

Robredo took time off court to treat the injury following his loss to Novak Djokovic in Dubai opener earlier this year. He, eventually, went under the knife that further delayed his comeback bid.

The 34-year-old, who is now ranked as low as No. 248 in the world, finally made his comeback at the Genova challenger earlier this month before going down in the first round to Teymuraz Gabashvili.

But, Robredo is looking for brighter things ahead. “I was really looking forward to playing again. Now in Metz, I think I will play better,” he told

He continued: “There are going to be some difficult months ahead because having to start playing with pain is annoying and it isn’t easy. The goal is to get back to 100 per cent next year and give my all to see if we can have another great run, another great comeback.”

Interestingly, Robredo had triumphed in Metz back in 2007 after defeating Andy Murray in the title-clash. He will look to catch the winning momentum when the tournament kick-starts on Monday.
