Jerzy Janowicz Returns to Competitive Tennis: ´I hope I won´t hurt myself´

Jerzy Janowicz, who’d been battling injuries, is finally looking to making a comeback. The Pole will be playing his first match, in the ATP Challenger tournament in Segovia, Spain this week. It will be his first match since the Australian Open, at the start of this year.

'I have been out for eight months and I haven't touched the racket for five months,’ remarked the world no. 154, who has had some serious knee issues. He also added that he hoped of not injuring his knee again during the match.

'I have not been on the Central Court so I do not know how it's like to play there, but in the other courts it's difficult to play, they are ancient and I am not used to play there,' Janowicz commented, speaking about the tournament.

The finalist at the 2012 Paris Masters had undergone surgery in October. The former world no. 14 will also be representing Poland at the Olympic Games in the men's singles.
