The young American Jenson Brooksby had another arthroscopic procedure on his right wrist two months after having one on his left wrist. Like in March with the first operation, Dr. Steven Shin handled the second, and Jenson anticipates a speedy recovery and return to practice.

The American said his left wrist reacts well and expressed hope for the same with his right wrist. In order to prepare for his return, Jenson wants to get on the court as soon as possible. The wrist pain Brooksby has been experiencing for the past two years got worse in the second half of 2022.

In Auckland at the beginning of 2023, the young gun defeated three opponents and advanced to the semifinals. Jenson lost 6-3, 6-4 to Cameron Norrie in the championship match because he struggled to strike his backhand correctly in the second set and instead used slice.

Within a two-month period, Jenson Brooksby had surgery on both wrists.

Only on the penultimate day of the Australian Open preparation did Brooksby use his backhand. If the 2022 season’s opening Major wasn’t also postponed owing to a positive coronavirus test, he would have retired.

Jenson defeated world no. 3 Casper Ruud in the second round after shocking world no. 1 Christopher O’Connell in the opening round. In his first match, the 22-year-old American defeated the Norwegian 6-3, 7-5, 6-7, 6-2 to go to the third round. After losing to Tommy Paul in the third round, Brooksby left for the country.

Before participating in practice sessions in Florida, he paid a visit to Dr. Shin in Los Angeles. Jenson visited a different physician after which he left California and had the initial surgery. The young shooter mended his left wrist two months later with the intention of returning to competition without any injuries.

“Hello everyone, I had a successful arthroscopic surgery on my right wrist this morning to repair a displaced tendon. We appreciate the attention and direction provided by Dr. Shin and his staff at @Kerlan Jobe. My left wrist has responded well, and rehabilitation is progressing.

The best way for me to return to the court at full strength was through surgery on my right wrist. Since the second half of 2022, my wrists have been heavily wrapped as I play, so this was nothing new. The past few months have been difficult, and I anticipate difficulties in the next weeks.

I’m eager to resume training and work on enhancing various aspects of my game, such as my serve. I don’t have a set return date to competition, but we will make every effort to put me in the best possible position to win. I appreciate the well wishes, and I’ll be back,” stated Jenson Brooksby.
