Stan Wawrinka will undergo knee surgery in hopes of preserving his future career.
“I am sad to announce that after talking with my team and doctor I had to make a difficult decision to undergo a medical intervention on my knee. This was the only solution to make sure I will be able to compete at the top level for many more years,” Wawrinka announced on Facebook.
Stan Wawrinka defeated Andy Murray, and Rafael Nadal defeated Dominic Thiem to set up a mouth-watering clash for the French Open title on Sunday.
Stan Wawrinka, the Swiss who won the title in 2015 against Novak Djokovic, faced a tough test in Britain’s Andy Murray as the two squared off in the semi-final at the French Open for the second year in a row.
The 18-time Grand Slam winner, who has been dominant in the first few months of the year, has decided to skip Roland Garros (the French Open), citing that he wants to keep playing “for many years to come”.
