Milos Raonic has stepped out of Wimbledon after aggravating a calf injury.
The 2016 Wimbledon finalist announced his withdrawal in an Instagram post after experiencing a “minor set back” in training.
It’s Raonic’s second straight major miss after he pulled out of Roland Garros last month.
“I wanted to share that I am incredible sad and hurt that I won’t be ready to compete at Wimbledon this year,” Raonic wrote in an Instagram post. “It is a pinnacle in my schedule each and every year. I was working hard preparing many of the recent tournaments.
“On the second to last day I hurt my calf. I have been working hard to heal it but had a minor set back. Therefore I won’t be ready for Wimbledon. I will be working hard to get back as soon as possible.”
The 22nd-ranked Canadian has registered a 7-4 record this season. Raonic has not played since pushing eventual-champion Hubert Hurkacz in a 7-6-in-the-third set loss in the Miami Open round of 16.
