British tennis player, Laura Robson has expressed her uncertainties about her future in tennis after undergoing a third hip surgery which she confirmed on social media recently.
The former Wimbledon junior champion had posted a photo of herself on Instagram wearing crutches on her 27th birthday.
Laura’s first hip surgery was in July 2018 and she returned to the courts in the spring of 2019. The pains however persisted and this led to a second surgery in December.
She returned back to training about a year later and posted a video clip of herself at the National Tennis Centre, London, but compelled by the persisting ache, she had to undergo a third surgery.
"Sadly I had to undergo a 3rd operation on my hip last week. I was desperate to carry on with training but was in so much pain that surgery was unavoidable,"
"Following the advice of the surgeon and other doctors, a decision has been made to prioritize the long term health of my hip.
"Where that leaves me with tennis I'm really not sure, it will depend on how things heal in the next few months. More than anything my goal is to have a happy, pain-free life.
"This whole process has been incredibly mentally draining and I'm so grateful to the physios/family/friends that have been there to guide me through it (socially distanced of course)."
Laura has been described as the ‘Queen of Wimbledon’ after her victory at her first junior Grand Slam at the Wimbledon girls' event.
Her professional career started in 2008, in the Olympics game of 2012, she bagged the silver medal in the mixed double which she partnered with Andy Murray.
Will the tennis court see Laura in action again, time, of course, will clear these uncertainty.
