Sloane Stephens was one of the impact players in the first half of 2016; the American racked up three titles at the ASB Classic, the Abierto Mexicano Telcel, and the Volvo Car Open.

Everything changed a few months later; after pushing Svetlana Kuznetsova to a thrilling three-setter at Wimbledon, Stephens picked up a left foot injury that forced her off the tour after the Olympic tennis event in Rio de Janeiro.

Aiming to return at the start of this season, the 23-year-old has been forced to postpone her comeback after having surgery to deal with the injury once and for all.

When can fans expect to see the 2013 Australian Open semifinalist back on court? Check out her full message posted on her official Facebook page:
