Default some comebacks...

long-term ? mmmh then here are some players who deserve to be mentioned.

cash after his 1985/1986 break.
(#4 in 1988, 1 slam win & 2 finals after the break)

mcenroe after his 1986 break.
(#4 in 1989, several slam/masters SF + 1 WTC title after the break)

i thought about agassi, but i don't think he stayed more than 6 full months without playing...
muster's (1989) and rafter's (1999/2000) injury breaks were also a bit shorter than 6 months.

krajicek was absent 6 months and a few days in 1992/1993, won his 1st return tournament on clay at barcelona.
(#4 in 1999, 1 slam win after the break)

martin (todd) after his 1997 break (6 months and a few days)
(#4 in 1999, 1 slam F after the break)

philippoussis after his 2001 break (6 months and a few days).
(#9 in 2003, 1 slam final after the break)

haas after his 2003 break.
(#9 in 2007, 2 slam SF after the break... and still on the tour !)

johansson (thomas) after in 2003 break.
(#8 in 2005, 1 slam SF after the break)

delpo after his 2010 break.
(#5, 1 slam SF & 1 masters SF so far... and probaby better)
