Bummer for French Open as World No. 6 Milos Raonic Joins List of Withdrawals

World No. 6 Milos Raonic pulled out of the next week’s French Open 2015, as he continues to recuperate from a foot injury. The big-serving Canadian underwent a surgery lately, but couldn’t get in shape for the recently-concluded Italian Open and now the prestigious tournament in Paris.

24-year-old Raonic took to his official Twitter account to corroborate his withdrawal from the mega clay event. He wrote: “I am sad to have to unfortunately withdraw from Roland Garros this year; I tried my best to be back and healthy in time after surgery.

“I will continue my rehab and proceed with preparations for a 100 percent strong Wimbledon and Queens run. Thank you for the love and support.”

Earlier, Raonic had pulled out of his quarterfinal battle (against Tomas Berdych) at the Monte Carlo Masters. He, later, turned up in Madrid, where he made it to the last-eight stage before being shown the door by eventual champion Andy Murray in straight sets.

An injury-plagued season continues to constrain Raonic, who holds a substandard 21-9 record this year on the men’s tour.

He, now, joins Juan Martin del Potro, Tommy Haas, Julien Benneteau and WTA player Laura Robson as the players to have vacated the draw.
