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.
