Swiss tennis star Stan Wawrinka is able to walk again as he seeks to make a comeback to the game.

The Grand Slam winner took a step in the right direction as he ditches his crutches he has sued for a month and half, according to report.

The tennis star underwent a surgery back in Mid-August but he has revealed that crutches are out of the way. He tweeted from his profile on Twittter: ‘Bye Crutches…hopefully see you never again!!’ adding several emojis. After struggling with keeping his foot on the ground and walking around the house, his situation has improved and is believed would continue in that light until he gets fully fit again.

There are still no clear reports if Wawrinka would resume in early 2018 as most other sidelined stars plan. Until last year, he usually started his year in Chennaiand then Brisbane before the Australian Open.

It is likely he would force the move if he can for the Australia event but there are no confirmations yet. Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal are reported to be keen on the Brisbane event as they prepare for the first major of the new season.

Wawrinka retired for the rest of the season due to the knee injury. He was knocked out of Wimbledon by Danil Medvedev as he struggled with his knee. The 32-year old promised to return in 2018.

He reached the last four at the Australian Open, and the final of the French Open before surrendering to the King of Court Nadal. He couldn’t continue at Wimbledon, he missed the US Open and the rest of the events for the year.
