Marin Cilic on Wednesday announced his withdrawal from Wimbledon as he continues his recovery from a right knee injury he suffered at the beginning of the season.

The Croatian reached the final at The Championships in 2017. Cilic owns a 31-13 record at the grass-court major.

“I’m sad to be missing the grass season and especially Wimbledon; this is a highlight of the season for every tennis player, but I know how important it is not to rush the recovery process,” Cilic wrote on Instagram. Things have generally been going well the last few weeks with my post-surgery training so I'm staying positive and focused on my long-term recovery. ๐Ÿ’ช

“I hope that I'll be competing very soon. I miss being on Tour, the tournaments and the fans, and I can’t wait to get back to all of that, to feel the thrill of stepping on court & competing. Until then, I’ll keep training and sharpening my motivation. Thanks for your continued support as always! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽพ”

Cilic won his opening match of the season against Roberto Carballes Baena in Pune, but when he stepped on court to warm up for his next match, he felt pain in his right knee and withdrew from the tournament.

The Croatian has not played a match since. Cilic is currently No. 100 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings.
