Draper To Miss Grass Season

British lefty suffered shoulder injury at Roland Garros

Jack Draper will miss the grass-court season due to a shoulder injury.

The British lefty was forced to retire from his first-round match against Tomas Martin Etcheverry at Roland Garros last week and announced on social media on Thursday that he is set for a period out.

“It’s clear my shoulder is going to need time and rehab to get back to where it needs to be,” Draper wrote on Instagram. “My team and I have made the difficult decision to miss the grass court season this year. I guess in this sport there are so many ups and downs but this one is tough to take. The only thing for sure is that I will keep persevering. Thank you for all the support I get on here it means a lot…”
