Reports: Djokovic to have knee surgery, will likely miss Wimbledon

A meniscus tear in his right knee has already forced tennis star Novak Djokovic to withdraw from the French Open. However, the injury may just be bad enough to put him in jeopardy of missing Wimbledon.

According to multiple reports, the 24-time Grand Slam singles champion will undergo surgery today in Paris and the expected recovery process will most likely keep him from competing in the next Grand Slam event on the tennis calendar, Wimbledon, which begins on July 1.

Djokovic suffered the injury to his knee in Monday’s round of 16 match against Francisco Cerundolo, but managed to pull out a five-set win.

The 37-year-old Serb is already the men’s record holder for major titles, but he has never won an Olympic gold medal − something he stated at the beginning of the season was a ‘priority’ of his. Even if he isn’t able to play at Wimbledon, Djokovic could be back in Paris in time for the start of the Summer Games.

The Olympic tennis tournament, which will also be held at Roland Garros, begins July 27.
