Muchova, Leylah, and Zverev all out of commission for at least several weeks it seems with foot/ankle problems incurred on the Roland Garros clay. Kudermetova also had a foot problem during Roland Garros - though it doesn't seem to be as serious as the other three.
Makes one wonder if the clay was significantly different this year. In the interview accompanying the article below, Leylah's father/coach says that the clay at Roland Garros was particularly sticky this year. It's still odd to get a stress fracture on clay, though, as clay is well known to be easier on the lower body (legs, knees, feet, ankles) in terms of impact than hard courts - and a stress fracture of the foot would likely be caused by repeated impact on a hard surface.

Leylah's dad/coach wanted her to stop playing in the Trevisan match. As he says in the interview - it's the parent side of him that is upset that she continued. And, as he also said - the fact that she didn't quit means that he raised her right. She is just as stubborn as he is, and that's why she didn't listen to him when he told her to stop. I knew he'd be rather conflicted with that - proud that she battled on... but also concerned and upset/angry that she battled on.

Zverev posted on his IG account that "it seems" he has "several torn lateral ligaments" in his ankle. He is on his way to Germany for further diagnosis.
If that is the case, that takes about one year to recover. Klay Thompson (NBA) had that same injury and that was the time frame.
Truly terrible.

I think Gauff could do very well at Wimbledon.

Zverev confirms that he had surgery, to repair three ligaments in his right ankle.
Good luck with the rehab, but I gather we can count him out for the rest of the year?

That's my guess, at least for tour events. Maybe he plays Laver Cup as a little trial and for practice if he's cleared? I'm sure there's a lot of money at stake there.

I read that it's the same injury Klay Thompson had. I'm not sure he can even test it by playing a hit and giggle. I think he's out the rest of the year too.

Translated from Spanish by Google
Rafa Nadal on crutches after completing the first part of the radiofrequency treatment on his foot.

The next few days will be key to see if he can play Wimbledon.

And the guy still stops to sign autographs (Rafa).
About Zverev. Remember how long it took for Klay to recover from that injury (he had consecutive ones). Zverev may be out until the clay court season next year. It is a brutal injury.
