Blake Withdraws From French Open With Lingering Knee Injury

Monday, May 24, 2010

American James Blake has been sidelined for several recent tournaments, and will remain so for the French Open.

According to a statement on Blake's website dated April 23, 2010:

"James's knee is doing better every day, but unfortunately he still doesn't have a firm timetable for a return to the courts. Presumably he will be back for the grass court season, so he's announced his schedule for June, and that consists of Halle, Eastbourne and Wimbledon."

In a recent statement to the Associated Press Blake said, "I have been required to take a break from competition to treat pain that I have been experiencing in my right knee. "The good news is that I will not need surgery. However, the treatment will require me to take a six-to-eight-week break. I look forward to a successful rehabilitation period and returning to competition in the near future."

Hope to see him back in action soon.
