Raonic withdraws from Wimbledon

Milos Raonic has withdrawn from Wimbledon with a calf injury. The big Canadian announced his decision via Instagram declaring he was ‘sad and hurt’ at not being able to attend The Championships.

Therefore I won’t be ready for Wimbledon. I will be working hard to get back as soon as possible. Milos Raonic

“It is a pinnacle in my schedule each and every year,” Raonic wrote to his 357,000 followers. “I was working hard preparing many of the recent tournaments. On the second to last day I hurt my calf. I have been working hard to heal it but had a minor set back.

“Therefore I won’t be ready for Wimbledon. I will be working hard to get back as soon as possible.”

The World No.18, Raonic, also withdrew from the French Open three weeks ago, before the tournament got underway.

The Canadian was a finalist at Wimbledon in 2016 – his best performance at a Grand Slam – losing to Andy Murray in straight sets.

Main draw play at Wimbledon begins Monday June 28.
