Canadian tennis star Milos Raonic has been diagnosed with stretched ligaments after a tumble Wednesday that forced him out of Wimbledon.

"I have since been working with the doctors, and I strained some ligaments around my hip and doing some more tests just as a precautionary measure," Raonic said Thursday. "I am hopeful that I will be back practising in the very near future and (am) looking forward to Davis Cup (July 8-10, Canada at Ecuador)."

Raonic slipped during his second-round match against Gilles Muller of Luxembourg, his legs splaying awkwardly.

Raonic remained on the ground for a few minutes before getting treatment from a trainer. He had his right thigh wrapped and returned to the match but was forced to retire two games later, leading 3-2, and was taken to a hospital.

"It was an unfortunate situation in (Wednesday's) match, but (I am) looking forward to returning to Wimbledon in 2012," Raonic said.
