Tennis: elbow surgery for Lucas Pouille


The Northerner will undergo an intervention in Paris in the coming days to treat his right elbow which has been disturbing him for ten months.

Disturbed for ten months by pain in the right elbow, Lucas Pouille, 26, had to face the facts. After having tried several treatment protocols and suffered as many relapses, the Northerner will have surgery in Paris in the coming days. A minimally invasive surgical procedure.

“Obviously I would have preferred to be able to avoid an operation. It is never something trivial in the career of a professional sportsman, but today it is the best decision to take in order to be able to replay normally, explains the former French n ° 1, who had reached 10th in the world in 2018. After months of coping with the pain, it is time to finally turn this page to better start again. "

Some news ... My right elbow needs to be operated. The minimally invasive operation will be performed this month in Paris. It is the best decision to make to finally replay without pain. I hope to be able to resume this season. Thank you for your support! 👊🏻

After a period of rest and re-education, the semi-finalist of the 2019 Australian Open had to give up during an exhibition in Saudi Arabia before drawing a line under the Australian tour. His 2020 results show only a meager defeat against the American Rubin in the 1st round of the Indian Wells Challenger in early March, before the circuit stopped due to coronavirus.

At the end of confinement, the n ° 58 at ATP entered the UTS, the test created by Patrick Mouratoglou in his academy in the south of France. But his ills quickly caught up with him, notably preventing him from serving. "I still hope to be able to resume training and competition before the end of the season in order to be 100% competitive as soon as possible," he explains.

Even if it is too early to estimate the duration of his unavailability, the US Open (August 31-September 13) and Roland-Garros (September 27-October 11) will be played without him…
