Brooksby Undergoes Wrist Surgery, Out for 10-12 Weeks

Tennis Express

American Jenson Brooksby, the current World No.49, has underwent wrist surgery and will miss at least 10-12 weeks.

β€œI underwent arthroscopic left wrist surgery this morning to repair tendon sheath as my tendon was 100 percent dislocated,” he said in an Instagram post. β€œThis wrist has troubled me for a while and it got a lot worse during the Auckland ATP. Surgery was the last resort; my team and I were confident in the decision and recovery process.

β€œI will use this time to get better in many areas. I’ll be back.”

The Sacramento native started the season strongly with a trip to the Auckland semifinals. He then reached the third round at the Australian Open, taking out World No.3 Casper Ruud, but looked to be suffering as he fell to Tommy Paul in straight sets in the third round.

Brooksby and Gilbert Part Ways

Brooksby also announced that he has parted ways with the man who guided him for many years, Joseph Gilbert.

β€œOf course having to do the last option sucks,” he said, per ATPTour.com. β€œBut I think the only way to look at it is that the glass is half full. I need to focus on the things I can control right now, which is find a good coach and team around me and get certain areas of my body better, footwork, things like that.”
