Wawrinka withdraws from the Roland Garros tennis tournament
Wassil quoted a source as confirming that Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka withdrew from the French Open this year because he had not recovered from an operation on his left foot last March. Wawrinka, 36, won the French Open at the Roland Garros sandy grounds in 2015, but he has not participated in any tournaments since last March. After that, the player, who won three Grand Slam titles and is ranked third in the former world, underwent minor surgery on the left foot, and said at the time that he would be out of action for only a few weeks. During this period, Wawrinka, ranked 24 in the world, published several photos and videos on social media from his headquarters in Monaco, but the source said that he would not be ready to participate in the French Open, which will start on May 30. The source added that Wawrinka would then work on making a comeback during the clay court season before the start of the Wimbledon Grand Prix on June 28.
