BERLIN (AP) — Alexander Zverev has undergone surgery to repair torn ligaments in his right ankle.
The third-ranked Zverev sustained the injury during his French Open semifinal against eventual champion Rafael Nadal.
"To return to competition as quickly as possible, to ensure all the ligaments heal properly, and to reclaim full stability in my ankle, surgery was the best choice," Zverev said in an Instagram post.
Zverev said he had the surgery in Germany on Tuesday morning after receiving confirmation that "all three of the lateral ligaments in my right ankle were torn."
The 25-year-old German player didn't specify a timetable for his return.
