Jennifer Brady is unfortunately having yet another extended injury layoff, but the good news is that her recent knee surgery “went extremely well.”
Just six months after ending an injury hiatus that lasted almost two years, Brady is forced to step away from competitive tennis for yet another long period, due to a knee injury she picked up during the 2023 off-season.

“With this surgery, I will be out for quite some time as the recovery and rehab process is extensive,” Brady explained on January 18, when she disclosed that she would not start the 2024 season. Recently, the American shared photos from her hospital bed to update us on her condition, indicating that the surgery was super successful. Additionally, she expressed gratitude to the doctor who performed the procedure.
The 28-year-old Brady shared a lighthearted Instagram vs. Reality post, in which she complimented her colleague Ajla Tomljanovic on her post-operation appearance. The Australian had recently undergone surgery to remove uterine fibroids.
The former world No.13 Brady made a return to the courts last summer, participating in six tournaments following knee and foot injuries that had kept her sidelined since August 2021. The standout performance of her brief comeback was the third round of the US Open, an event where she had previously reached the semifinals in 2020.
