Canada's rising tennis star, Milos Raonic, will be sidelined for six weeks after undergoing hip surgery this week, says Tennis Canada.

According to a news release sent late Thursday, the 20-year-old from Thornhill, Ont., had hip surgery on Tuesday in Vail, Colo. He is already riding the stationary bike and expects to be back hitting on the courts in six weeks.

A six-week recovery period would suggest Raonic will miss the Rogers Cup, which will take place Aug. 6 to 14 in Montreal, although Tennis Canada says it's not ready to count him out before seeing how his recovery goes.

Raonic injured the hip falling awkwardly during his second-round match at Wimbledon on June 22 against Luxembourg's Gilles Muller. He retired from that match and later decided to withdraw from Canada's Davis Cup Tie against Ecuador, which is to be contested on Friday.

The 6-foot-5, 198-pound Canadian has a 26-13 record in 2011 and is ranked 26th in the world. He is the highest-ranked Canadian male singles player in history.
