“I have decided to have minor wrist surgery at the Mayo clinic with one of the best wrist doctors in the world, Dr. Richard Berger," she wrote. "Dr. Berger is very confident that I will be able to return to the tennis court pain free before you even have time to miss me... Although sadly, I will have to miss the French Open and Wimbledon.”

Robson has only played one full match this season, and had to pull out of Indian Wells and Miami due to the wrist.

She pulled out of the ASB Classic in New Zealand, and a week later retired in the second set of a match with Yanina Wickmayer in Hobart due to problems with her left wrist.

The current world No. 64 peaked in the rankings at No. 27 after last year's Wimbledon.

Dr. Berger is the same doctor who performed the both of Juan Martin del Potro's wrist surgeries.
