Swiss tennis player Stan Wawrinka announced he will miss the rest of the season due to a knee injury.
Wawrinka will not defend the title of the last Grand Slam in the season, US open, and the problem is a injury that will be tried to resolve it by surgery.
“I am sorry that I have to say that after talking with the members of my team and the doctor, I made a difficult decision to go for knee surgery. It was the only option and I’m sure that I will be able to compete at the highest level again, “said Wawrinka.
He thus joined Novak Djokovic, whom he defeated in the last year’s final of the US Open, in the decision to miss the rest of the season.
“Everything is disappointing, but I’m already looking at recovery plans. I love this sport and I will work hard to get back to top form to play for many more years. I want to thank my fans for the support messages they sent me during the past few days. See you in 2018, “added Wawrinka.
