Nightmare injuries are back for Nicolas Almagro. The Spaniard player went through another left knee surgery, the second one since June when he hurt his meniscus at the Roland Garros during his match against Juan Martin del Potro which had forced him to take a two month and a half break.
'Difficult moment that you never want to live again, it happened again and we will stand up again!! New knee surgery and so we leave 2017! We need to think about other things. We will keep fighting for our goals, 2018 Will start a few months later but we will try to be back at the top', Almagro wrote through his official Instagram account.
Dropped to the 151st place in the ATP Rankings, the 32-year-old Murcia native, who turned pro in 2003 and achieved his career-high ranking at No. 9 in 2011, is having a complex and difficult final part of the career. In 2017 he played 32 matches earning 10 wins and 12 losses.
