Milos Raonic moved on at Queen’s Club then he moved out.

 

Raonic withdrew from the Fever-Tree Championships at Queen’s Club due to a right pectoral injury.

 

The announcement of Raonic’s departure came hours after he advanced to the second round with a 6-1, 3-1, (retired) conquest of Yuki Bhambri.

 

The 2016 Queen’s Club finalist hopes to return for Wimbledon next month.

 

Fellow former Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych pulled out doubles with a back issue after bowing to Julien Benneteau, 7-5, 3-6, 6-3.

 

Raonic did not mention the injury in his post-match press conference, but revealed hours later he suffered it on the second to last point of the match.

 

The 27-year-old Canadian said he’s tried to learn from returning too quickly from injury, aches and pains in the past.

 

“It’s not stupid if you make a mistake once. If you do it twice, then you’re to blame,” Raonic said. “Yeah, also part of it was I didn’t know myself as well Now I know myself much better. I know what each single type of nagging pain is a representation of. It’s not really so much a question.

 

“I can sort of pinpoint, hey, if I’m feeling this, it’s maybe something, okay, because I haven’t played for a while, or, hey, I have this kind of sensation. Maybe it’s something that is a little bit more alarming.”
