The Australian suffered an injury to his wrist at the Mallorca Open in June last year, and that foiled his plans of featuring at  Wimbledon and at the Tokyo Olympics. His wrist injury also kept him out of the remainder of the season in 2021.

Since the beginning of 2022, he has been trying to stage a comeback, but his rehabilitation schedule did not go according to plan which made him pull out of the Australian Open. While he did say that he was planning to play the Indian Wells and Miami Open, his plans suffered another setback! While he did play at the Marbella Challenger event, he was knocked out in the first round by Pedro Cachin. He again made plans to play at the Monte Carlo Masters, but had to pull out at the very last moment, because he contracted Covid-19 at Marbella and could not recover in time.
