Croatia’s Ana Konjuh underwent surgery on the broken leg that forced her to withdraw from the French Open.
Konjuh, 24, fell during a practice session in Paris and sustained a broken left fibula. She had been scheduled to play Simona Halep of Romania in Tuesday’s first round.
Konjuh, ranked No. 85 in the world, said she wasn’t sure how much time she would miss.
So unfortunately I had to withdraw from @rolandgarros since I had a fall and fractured my fibula. 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.
Thanks for all your messages and support.
