Milos Raonic Withdraws From 2024 Miami Open

Milos Raonic Withdraws From 2024 Miami Open

by Erik Virostko

Milos Raonic's horrible luck during his tennis comeback continues as he was forced to withdraw from the 2024 Miami Open.

The Canadian clearly belongs on the ATP Tour. He's shown that in recent months, as after not playing for two years, he was able to come back and get back to winning almost immediately.

The 33-year-old even outplayed some solid players, and at the Australian Open, he went toe to toe against one of the dark horses at the event, Alex de Minaur, before being forced to retire.

However, the main problem for Raonic still seems to be his health. He made the comeback because he believed that he could be still competitive and stay healthy for a prolonged period. While one part of that sentence is truthful, the other is not.

The 2016 Wimbledon finalist once again started with a win in Indian Wells, outplaying Sumit Nagal in two relatively simple sets, however, when it came to his second-round match against Holger Rune, he withdrew before the match.

Raonic's withdrawals are interesting, though. He often plays one or two matches, and withdraws during on before the next one. Even if he's playing with some discomfort, he's clearly able to push through and win regardless.

Yet, he seems to be saving himself for something, as he wants to avoid another big injury, and that opens up a question, which tournament is he saving himself for. It's clearly not the Miami Open, as after his Indian Wells withdrawal, he withdrew also from the second ATP Masters 1000 tournament of the Sunshine Double.

It's very likely that the Canadian wants to say one last goodbye to his fans in home, and that would be at the 2024 Canadian Open in Montreal from August 6th to 12th. It will be a certainly difficult decision to make for Raonic, as his level is clearly there, but his body is not helping him.
