    Swedish Tennis Star Has Surgery on Foot, Shoulder

    December 07, 2000

    By the Associated Press- Swedish tennis star Thomas Enqvist had surgery on his foot and shoulder Wednesday and is expected to be sidelined at least until March.

    He will miss the Australian Open in January, the first Grand Slam of the year, and Sweden's Davis Cup match against the Czech Republic in early February.

    "Thomas can start practicing again on the tennis court in two months," said Per Renstrom, the Swedish Davis Cup team doctor who operated on him. "Our goal is that he can start playing competitively again in three months."

    Renstrom removed a small piece of bone from Enqvist's foot, an injury that bothered him all season. Renstrom also repaired a repetitive strain injury in the right shoulder.

    Enqvist ended this season with three early exits, losing opening matches in Masters Series events in Stuttgart, Germany, and Paris, and then in the Stockholm Open, where he was a three-time defending champion and lost to eventual winner Thomas Johansson of Sweden.

    Enqvist finished ninth in this year's ATP Champions Race, just missing a spot in the season-ending Masters Cup won Sunday by Brazil's Gustavo Kuerten in Portugal.

    Winner of 18 career singles titles, Enqvist finished a career-high fourth on the rankings list last year, when he was an Australian Open finalist.
