  • Nicole Gibbs is due to undergo a surgical procedure on Friday

American tennis player Nicole Gibbs announced Monday she will miss the upcoming French Open because of surgery for salivary gland cancer.

The American posted on Twitter that she had been alerted to a growth on the roof of her mouth by her dentist and a biopsy came back positive for salivary gland cancer.

Following her procedure, Gibbs expects a 4-to-6 week recovery, ruling her out of the rest of the clay court season.

She also says that she hopes to return to the court in advance of the Wimbledon qualifiers in June.

Gibbs went on to confirm she had been given the green light to play in recent tournaments after the discovery and that they have served as a "nice distraction".

Gibbs won NCAA singles and team titles at Stanford and is ranked 116th in the world.

Gibbs, who was born in OH and is based in California, reached the third round at the 2014 U.S. Open and 2017 Australian Open.
