Medvedev doubtful for French Open as he goes for surgery


Daniil Medvedev

Russia’s Daniil Medvedev will be out of action for one or two months as he goes under the knife to fix a hernia problem.

The world number two announced this on Saturday, casting doubt over his participation at next month’s French Open.

He will also likely miss out on this month’s Monte Carlo Masters as well as the ATP 1000 events in Madrid and Rome in May.

Medvedev won the U.S. Open last year and lost in the Australian Open final to Rafa Nadal in January.

“The last months I have been playing with a small hernia. Together with my team I have decided to have a small procedure done to fix the problem,” he wrote on Twitter.

“I will likely be out for the next 1 – 2 months and will work hard to be back on court soon. Thanks for all the support.”
