2021 French Open finalist Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova will miss this year’s event due to a recurring knee injury.

She finished runner-up to Barbora Krejcikova in Paris last year, but has been plagued by knee trouble throughout 2022.

“I have been playing this in my head for the last week and it has been a really tough decision to make, as Roland Garros was always very special to me, especially after a dream run last year,” she said.

“But due to the pain for a long time, now the injury is limiting me physically and mentally to compete and practice fully.”
