It’s not the first time the legendary Swiss has gone under the knife. In 2017 he called his season early and did two surgeries on his left knee.
“The first surgery was arthroscopy to have a look at the problem and the second one was to reconstruct the cartilage,” Wawrinka said, according to ATPWorldTour.com. “It was very difficult and tough, a big surgery. I needed crutches for eight weeks and lost a lot of muscles because of that.”
