Bad news for two players who a few years ago firmly occupied the privileged positions of the world ranking. Injuries to Stan Wawrinka and Milos Raonic do not allow them to return to the circuit normally and they will not be able to participate in the penultimate Masters 1000 of the season. Around the same time they dropped out of the Indian Wells Masters 1000.
It is known that the Swiss underwent surgery for the second time just three months ago and has not played an official match since March, at the Doha tournament. There are 6 games in the year (3-3) and he did not appear in the quarterfinals of Melbourne II.
For his part, the Canadian only played one game since his debut in the Atlanta tournament in which he lost to Brandon Nakashima at the end of July and long ago he had not played since March, in Miami.. So far this year he has played just 12 games with a 7-5 record.
Complicated times for both who will be replaced by Tennys Sandgren and Denis Kudla.
