Canadian tennis wunderkind Milos Raonic has undergone surgery for a hip injury suffered last month at Wimbledon.

Raonic expects to back on the court hitting balls in about six weeks and ready for competition "at some point thereafter," Tennis Canada said in a news release Thursday.

Raonic, who had the surgery Tuesday in Vail, Colo., is already riding a stationary bike, Tennis Canada said.

The injury will force Raonic to miss the Rogers Cup in Montreal Aug. 5-14.

The 20-year-old from Thornhill, Ont., was injured June 22 during a second-round match at Wimbledon, forcing him out of the tournament. He tumbled at the baseline trying to make a return and his right leg bent awkwardly. Raonic attempted to continue his match against Gilles Muller but had to retire minutes later.

Raonic, a hard-hitting right-hander, is No. 26 in the world rankings. He won earlier this year in San Jose.
