GC and SA’s no 1 player had surgery on his ankle yesterday. We wish you a speedy recovery Kev! Here is a message from Kevin taken from his facebook page:
As you have probably noticed, I’ve had some injury problems which have caused me to withdraw from a few tournaments recently. My shoulder hasn’t been firing as it should, so I have been advised to take some time out to do some rehab so that my serve is firing on all cylinders! I therefore took this time to have some (very minor) surgery on my ankle yesterday – which the doctor said went very well. The ankle hasn’t been a huge problem, but I’m told that this procedure should extend my career for a few more years in the long run.
As for my return, I have my eyes on playing some clay court tennis this year… So stay tuned and I’ll keep you posted.
