Former junior Wimbledon champion Laura Robson joins hip surgery club
The Brit has only played three tournaments this past year and it was due to a painful lingering hip issue.
Published Dec 20, 2019
Laura Robson has become yet another player to undergo hip surgery, announcing that she is having a second operation.
The 25-year-old from Great Britain, who had her first surgery a year and a half ago, has been sidelined again for most of this season. The former top junior also had wrist surgery a few years ago.
A decision was made this week to undergo another hip operation in attempt to "fix the pain for good," Robson wrote on social media.
She said her first goal was to walk pain-free, but added, "Very much hope to be back on court soon."
Hip surgeries appear to have become all the rage, of sorts. Most prominently, Andy Murray won a tournament following a second hip procedure, but Bob Bryan also returned from a similar surgery to lift more doubles titles and Nenad Zimonjic began playing doubles again with not one but both hips surgically repaired.
Robson did not go into detail concerning the surgery or provide further plans.
