French Open runner-up Karolina Muchova has surgery on her right wrist

Karolina Muchova, last year's runner-up at the French Open, had an operation on her right wrist for an injury that has sidelined her since September.

"Following my injury at the US Open and an extensive rehabilitation phase, it turned out that a medical intervention was necessary. So here I am, tired and sad, but I know I'll be okay now," Muchova wrote on social media Tuesday. "The surgery was successful and I'm gonna do all I can to see you on the court again soon."

Muchova, 27, from the Czech Republic, is currently ranked 10th. She reached her first Grand Slam final at Roland Garros in 2023, saving a match point en route to eliminating Aryna Sabalenka in the semifinals before losing to Iga Swiatek in the title match.

Muchova then made it to the semifinals at the US Open before losing to eventual champion Coco Gauff.
