After missing almost two months due to an elbow injury, Frances Tiafoe intends to return to the Indian Wells Tour. Like many other players, he trains with World No. 1 Daniil Medvedev on the UCLA tennis courts.
Frances Tiafoe, an American tennis player, announced in February that he would be taking a break to recover from a recurring elbow ailment, with no clear date in sight for his return. Tiafoe, a former Australian Open quarterfinalist, had a breakthrough season in 2021, winning four top 10 matches and reaching his first ATP 500 final in Vienna, including big shocks Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrei Rublev at Wimbledon and the US Open.
Although the 24-year-old climbed to 29th in 2019, the 24-year-old’s finish of 38th was only the second time in his career that he finished a season inside the top 40. He opened 2022 with a back-to-back loss Thanasi Kokkinakis and Thomas Paul before losing to compatriot TaylorFritz in the second round of the Australian Open.
Then he announced he would take a detour to give his elbow some rest. He wasn’t expected to compete at Indian Wells but he’s recovered fairly quickly and will play.
