Stan Wawrinka gives fitness update as he confirms ‘small procedure’ on niggling injury
Three-time Grand Slam winner Stan Wawrinka will be sidelined “for a few weeks” after opting to have surgery on a troublesome foot injury.
The world No 21 was last in action at the Qatar Open at the beginning of March and he opted to withdraw from the Dubai Tennis Championships and Miami Open due to fatigue.
He has since undergone an operation on the niggling injury in his left foot.
