Harris Undergoes Season-Ending Wrist Surgery

South African sidelined with a wrist injury

South African Lloyd Harris announced on Instagram Friday that he will miss the rest of the season due to a right wrist injury.

“Hi guys just wanted to let you know that I decided to do surgery yesterday on my right wrist and that everything went really well,” Harris wrote on Instagram. “I have been struggling with severe pain over the last couple [of] months which has not allowed me to be near my best so surgery was my best and only option.

“I will unfortunately be out until 2023 but I am confident that I will return being super healthy, motivated and eager to achieve my goals. Big thanks to my doctor, my team, sponsors, family and friends and everyone for your messages and support! Cant wait to be back on court and enjoy the sport we all love so much!”

The 25-year-old enjoyed the best season of his career in 2021, winning 33 matches, while he reached a career-high No. 31 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings last September.

Harris held a 7-14 record this year, with his best result a run to the fourth round at the Miami Open presented by Itau.
