Former world No. 15 Juan Ignacio Chela revealed he suffered a brain aneurysm and last Thursday he underwent a surgery and now he is recovering at home. Chela, 42, retired from the Tour in 2012 but he still actively follows tennis as he often tweets about it.

Chela, who played his best tennis on clay, captured six titles during his career. “Hi everyone!!! I tell you that last Thursday I had a scheduled operation for an unruptured brain aneurysm. They placed two stents on me.

All went well. I’m already recovering at home,” Chela tweeted.
