It is with disappointment that I am announcing that I am unable to play in Delray Beach next week or Acapulco the following week due to an elbow injury sustained in the lead up to the Memphis ATP250 event.
Although I was only at 60% in Memphis I thought I would be able to get through a round or two and then be able to get some treatment ahead of Delray Beach where I was hoping for a wild card, but the main focus was to be ready for the ATP 500 event in Acapulco where I was due to play the main draw, thanks to a wild card from Raul and his team.
I am massively disappointed to have to cut short this trip but I have to make sure I am doing everything to benefit me in the long term and right now, playing with an injury is not going to do that. I am heading back to Melbourne for treatment and to get this elbow injury sorted once and for all. I would like to thank Peter and his team in Memphis for granting me a wild card there as well as Raul and his team in Acapulco, I am genuinely gutted I won’t be able to take my place in the draw but I plan on being there in 2015.
Thanks again for all the support, I will keep you all posted on my blog and I hope to be back out and competing sooner rather than later.
