Russia’s Daniel Medvedev will be out of action for a month or two as he goes under the knife to fix a hernia problem, the world number two said on Saturday, expressing doubts about his participation in next month’s French Open.

Medvedev, who won the US Open last year and lost to Rafa Nadal in the final of the Australian Open in January, is likely to miss this month’s Monte Carlo Masters as well as the ATP 1000 events in Madrid and Rome in May.

“Last month I was playing with a small hernia. Together with my team I decided to do a small process to solve the problem, “wrote world number two Medvedev on Twitter.

“I will probably be out for the next 1-2 months and work hard to get back to court soon. Thanks for all the support. “

Medvedev’s efforts to regain world number one were cut short on Thursday when Russia lost 7-6 (7) 6-3 to Poland’s Hubert Hurkaj in the quarter-finals of the Miami Open.

The French Open will be held in Paris from May 22 to June 5.
