The French Open 2021 will get over on Sunday and fans will get to know their champions by then. With its conclusion, the clay-court season will come to an end and then, the grass-court season will begin. However, even before its starting, former World No.3 Milos Raonic has announced some really unfortunate news.

Canadian star player, Milos Raonic, will not be playing at the Queen’s Club Championships 2021. The tournament is a lead-up tournament to the Wimbledon Championships 2021 and will take place from June 14, 2021, to June 2020, 2021.

This is really not a great sign as Raonic already missed the French Open 2021 due to a calf injury. It seems evident that he hasn’t recovered fully yet and will, therefore, miss this tournament before Wimbledon 2021.

The updates about his recovery are not known right now. In such a situation, there are doubts if he will be able to play at the Wimbledon Championships this year or not. However, some sources report that he’ll be back on the court by the time of the Grand Slam.

Milos Raonic in the 2021 season

Raonic began his 2021 season by playing at the ATP Cup 2021. Even though he couldn’t take his side into the semi-finals, he managed to win a match against Dusan Lajovic there. Overall, it has been a poor season for the Canadian player as he is yet to win a title this year.

Raonic played pretty well at the Australian Open 2021 as he managed to reach the pre-quarters. However, World No.1 Novak Djokovic battled past him in four sets there and as a result, he got eliminated.

He failed to impress the fans even at the Mexican Open and at the Miami Open 2021 as he got knocked out in the pre-quarters of both the tournaments. After this, he injured himself and didn’t play a single match on clay this season.

Fans hope that Raonic recovers before the Wimbledon Championships 2021 and want him to recreate his famous 2016 campaign there. Even though the 30-year-old lost to Andy Murray in the finals, he played some really great tennis at that tournament. Will Raonic be able to win his maiden Grand Slam title at Wimbledon this year?
