Paris – Novak Djokovic will undergo knee surgery on a torn medial meniscus in Paris, which will likely rule him out of Wimbledon, according to a report by L’Equipe.

Yesterday, an MRI scan revealed a torn medial meniscus in his right knee, leading Djokovic to pull out of his quarterfinal with Casper Ruud at Roland-Garros.

Djokovic hurt the knee several weeks ago, and exacerbated the injury during his five-set victory over Francisco Cerundolo on Monday in Paris.
