Sloane Stephen has undergone foot surgery and will be sidelined for a few more months.

The 23-year-old American has not played since withdrawing from last year’s tournament in Cincinnati with the injury, and has announced that she recently required surgery.

"The good news is the surgery was successful and I have already started rehab," she wrote on Facebook, showing herself with her leg in a walking boot.

In an interview with Tennis Channel, the former Grand Slam semfinalist suggested she would aim to return for Wimbledon.

Stephens has fallen to No. 52 in the rankings.
