After missing the French Open, he made his comeback in June by losing to China’s Wu Yibing in Stuttgart as he attempted to get ready for Wimbledon.

However, he was forced to withdraw on the eve of last month’s tournament due to a wrist injury and will now miss the year’s final grand slam, which gets under way in New York on 28 August. He is currently ranked No 92 in the world.
