Greensboro native John Isner has withdrawn from the French Open, tennis' next Grand Slam event beginning May 27.
"Unfortunately, I have to withdraw from Roland Garros this year," Isner wrote in a statement posted on his Twitter account. "The foot injury I sustained in Miami has not fully healed and there's just no way I could possibly compete on the clay in Paris.
"While missing grand slams is not something I'm accustomed to, I've been fortunate to have such a clean bill of health my whole career. This is a bump in the road and I'm certain I will fully recover.
"Hope to see everyone at Wimbledon!"
Isner, a Page High School alumnus and Dallas resident, suffered a stress fracture in his left foot during his Miami Open final loss to Roger Federer on March 31.
Isner is the ATP World Tour's No. 11-ranked player.
