Krause also has to undergo wrist surgery

Krause also has to undergo wrist surgery

At least Austria's new number one was not affected by his batting hand.

Due to follow-up treatment for her wrist, which underwent surgery on September 6, 2023, Julia Grabher recently canceled her participation in the French Open in Paris and now trails Senja Krause in the WTA rankings. But there's not exactly good news about Austria's new number one these days either. The Viennese woman also underwent surgery on her wrist on Wednesday. In the case of the 22-year-old right-handed player, who was eliminated in the second qualifying round in the French capital, it was a simple surgery that did not occur on her main hand. Kraus initially left open the expected duration of the outage in her statement.

“After suffering from pain in my left wrist for over a month, I have been doing some tests at home over the past few days. “In order to get back healthy as quickly as possible, my team and I decided that arthroscopic surgery would be the best option,” Kraus wrote in a story on Her official Instagram page on Wednesday afternoon – including a photo from her hospital bed “The operation went well, my rehab will start soon and I can't wait to get back on the field. Thank you to my doctors, family and friends for their support.”

Krause, who is currently ranked 246th in the WTA rankings, easily fits into the list of top domestic pros in the recent past who have suffered from serious wrist problems. As is known, along with Grabher, Dominic Thiem is no longer able to keep up with the best players in the world after a career-ending injury to his wrist nearly three years ago this season. It is not surprising, of course, that many of the complaints frequently affect the wrist, because it is subjected to very intense stress in tennis.
