Marketa Vondrousova, the French Open 2019 finalist, said on Monday that she had wrist surgery and she will miss this year’s Grand Slam tournament.
“The last few weeks were not easy, I have been experiencing recurring pain in my wrist,” the current world number 35 said on Instagram, posing with a bandaged left forearm.
“After seeing a couple of doctors I decided to get this small surgery done to be able to play pain-free,” added Vondrousova, the silver Olympic medallist from last year.
“Staying positive through the recovery and can’t wait to be back on the court soon,” said the 22-year-old Czech.
The French Open is scheduled to start on May 22.
Vondrousova played her last game which she lost to Ons Janber of Tunisia.
In the French Open 2019 final, Vondrousova lost to Australia’s Ashleigh Barty in straight sets.
