Bad news for Goran Ivanisevic fans out there. The former Wimbledon champion from Croatia was forced to pull out of this week’s Legends Championships Tennis Tournament at the Ritz-Carlton in Grand Cayman due to a lingering knee injury.
“I am very disappointed not to be able to play in the Cayman Islands due to the longer than expected recovery time necessary after my knee operation,” Ivanisevic said.
“I was looking forward playing in a first-class event on a dream island. I will be waiting for next year impatiently in order to have a chance to play this event,” he added.
Replacing Ivanisevic in this Outback Champions Series event is Australian Pat Cash, also a former Wimbledon champ who attained a career high ranking of no. 4 during his ATP days.
