Alexander Zverev has undergone surgery on torn ankle ligaments following his fall in the French Open semi-final against Rafael Nadal.
Zverev fell and twisted his ankle at the end of the second set at Roland Garros on Friday, yelling in pain as Nadal rushed around the net to help.
The German was helped to his feet but taken off the court in a wheelchair for treatment.
After five minutes the 25-year-old re-emerged on crutches to inform the umpire that he could not continue. Now, all three outer ligaments of the right ankle had to be operated in order to achieve full stability of the ankle in the shortest possibly time. A come back date was not given.
Thomas Müller has extended his contract with Bayern München until 2024.
"You can't imagine Thomas Müller without FC Bayern - nor FC Bayern without Thomas Müller," added board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic.
"That's why we're very happy that Thomas has extended his contract until summer 2024. Thomas is a leader who's hungry for success, and a role model on and off the pitch who embodies FC Bayern better than anyone," said Salihamidzic.
Müller, who has spent his entire career at Bayern, making 624 appearances with 226 goals and 242 assists to his name, commented:
"I'm delighted to have extended my contact with FC Bayern Munich until 2024 today. The journey we've been on since I joined the FCB academy in 2000 has been a fantastic success story up to now. It gives me immense pleasure to hold up the red colors year after year, on and off the pitch - even if the wind blows in your face from time to time. So, let's keep going together!"
