Chile's Gonzalez to have hip surgery

BY foxsports • September 22, 2010

Chilean tennis player Fernando Gonzalez says he'll have hip surgery and expects to be out up to nine months.

Gonzalez said Wednesday on his website that he will have surgery on his right hip on Oct. 4 in New York. He said his doctor said knee surgery is also a possibility.

Gonzalez has been sidelined for much of the year. He attempted to play in the recent U.S. Open but retired during the third set of his first-round match.
