Kei Nishikori reveals hip surgery, expected to miss up to six months
Kei Nishikori announced that he underwent hip surgery and that the recovery will keep him away from the courts for up to six months.
Kei Nishikori has struggled with multiple injuries over the course of his career and it's been getting worse in the past few years. Nishikori missed a lot of time last year with injuries and he delayed the start of his 2022 campaign because of similar issues. Now he announced that he will miss up to six more months due to a hip surgery he underwent recently.
"Hi everyone, I wanted to give you an update. As most of you know, I have not been able to play since Indian Wells with my left hip injury. After trying several different rehab options I have decided (together with my medical team) to have arthroscopic hip surgery this week. I will work as hard as I can and the goal is to be back in 6 months. Thank you all for your support and look forward to see you again on the Tour. Best, Kei."
