    Jack Draper to sit out the grass-court season, including Wimbledon, due to injury

    Shoulder Injury Forces Jack Draper to Miss Wimbledon

    Upcoming British tennis star, Jack Draper, has announced that he will miss the grass-court season due to a shoulder injury. Unfortunately, this means that he won’t be participating in this year’s Wimbledon tournament.

    The announcement came after Draper’s senior debut at the French Open against Argentina’s Tomas Martin Etcheverry ended in retirement. He had to withdraw from the match during the first round due to his shoulder issues.

    “It’s clear my shoulder is going to need time and rehab to get back to where it needs to be,” said Draper on Instagram.

    This was not the first time that physical problems have affected his performance on-court as well as caused him retirements from matches earlier than expected. In fact, this was his third successive Grand Slam match where an injury compromised his game.

    Tough Times for a Young Talent

    A ranked player of world no.55, Jack Draper is just starting out on what looks like a promising career ahead of him but with injuries plaguing him so frequently early-on begs questions about how long can he keep up with such setbacks? From retiring from US open last September because of hamstring issues, cramping during Australian Open defeat by Rafael Nadal in January and then retiring again recently while playing Carlos Alcaraz – one could only hope for better health conditions for this young talent in future tournaments. It is difficult being injured all too often; sometimes mentally destroying even more than losing games themselves.”

    The sport can be brutal when it comes down hard upon its players especially those who are still relatively new i.e., fewer matches under their belt which makes them susceptible to injuries. Draper is no exception to this rule.

    Difficult Times Ahead

    Despite the challenges, Jack Draper remains upbeat about his future in tennis and vows to keep persevering despite setbacks. He said,

    “The only thing for sure is that I will keep persevering. Thank you for all the support, it means a lot.”

    We hope that with time and proper care, Jack will recover from his shoulder injury soon and be back on-court to showcase his skills once again.
