Gibbs, who is ranked world No 116, will undergo surgery on Friday and has targeted a return to competitive action for Wimbledon qualifying, which begins on June 24. "Unfortunately I will be withdrawing from the remainder of the clay season and will not be competing at this year's Roland Garros," Gibbs said on Twitter.

This year's French Open will run from May 26 until June 9, with Rafael Nadal and Simona Halep as defending champions.
