Ana Konjuh had been scheduled to face former Roland Garros champion Simona Halep in a highly-anticipated first round in Paris, but the former world No. 20 would disappear from the draw entirely, later revealing a broken fibula as the reason why she was forced to withdraw.
“Surgery is done and it all went well. Not sure how long the rehab will be but hopefully I’ll be back as soon as possible,” Konjuh wrote on Twitter.
Caused by a fall, this injury setback is the latest to keep the 2013 junior Australian and US Open champion from matching her early promise. A Top 20 player back in 2017 after reaching the last eight in Flushing Meadows the previous year, Konjuh would miss much of the next four seasons due to a persistent elbow issue—one that required a whopping four surgeries.
