Tennis is one of the most brutal sports when it comes to injuries. The physically demanding game has a reputation for cut-shorting many flourishing careers or preventing them from participating in major tournaments. One of those unfortunate ones is the three-time Grand Slam champion from Switzerland, Stan Wawrinka.

LEFT FOOT AN ISSUE FOR STAN WAWRINKA

The Swiss star will continue his recovery from a left foot injury that required a procedure in March as per the ATP website. The three-time Grand Slam champion underwent an operation on his left foot earlier this year.

His absence is because of a left foot surgery, which also caused his withdrawal from the French Open 2021. It is the first time after 16 years that Stan did not play at Roland-Garros.

Wawrinka is a 2014 Australian Open, the 2015 French Open, and the 2016 US Open champion. In doubles and team tennis for Switzerland, he has won a gold medal in the men’s doubles event at the 2008 Summer Olympics, partnering with Roger Federer, and the Davis Cup in 2014.
