Isner (foot) still recovering, to miss French Open
John Isner announced on Twitter on Friday that he will miss the French Open with a foot injury.
Isner hurt the foot in the final of the Miami Open against Roger Federer at the end of March.
“Unfortunately, I have to withdraw from Roland Garros this year,” Isner said in the post. “The foot injury I sustained in Miami has not fully healed and there’s just no way I could possibly compete on the clay in Paris.
“While missing grand slams is not something I’m accustomed to, I’ve been fortunate to have such a clean bill of health my whole career. This is a bump in the road and I’m certain I will fully recover. Hope to see everyone at Wimbledon!”
Isner, 34, reached the fourth round of last year’s French Open before falling to Juan Martin del Potro.
